ACLU to host ‘Election Dissection’ panel for post-election analysis
TOLEDO: To analyze how the results of the election might affect civil liberties in Ohio and across the United States, the ACLU of Ohio will host a panel of experts for Election Dissection 2006 on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sanger Branch Library, 3030 West Central Ave., Toledo . This event is free and open to the public.
The panelists will share their thoughts on the 2006 election results, and then take questions from the audience. The ACLU of Ohio is non-partisan and the discussion will focus on civil liberties.
ACLU of Ohio Executive Director Christine Link said, “The Election Dissection program is a great occasion for citizens to reflect upon the impact that electoral decisions have on individual rights. Additionally, the outcome of this election will serve as an indicator of what to expect for the upcoming 2008 presidential election. It is important that we begin to prepare ourselves now for the issues that the presidential campaigns will likely focus on.”
The nonprofit, nonpartisan ACLU of Ohio has offices in Cleveland and Cincinnati and community and campus chapters throughout the state—with more then 30,000 ACLU members and supporters in Ohio and more than 500,000 nationwide.
