Join grassroots groups and households around the country who, during the first two weeks of September, will be hosting premieres of the ACLU's "Beyond the Patriot Act" -- a 30-minute program from producers of "Outfoxed" and "Unconstitutional." The program, the first in a series called "The ACLU Freedom Files," is designed to spark action and reveal how civil liberties affect real people every day. It features stirring accounts of current cases, as well as well-known actors, activists, and comedians.
Hosting a showing is easy and energizing -- and it's a great way to mobilize people and influence the debate that's about to resume in Congress. You can see the program on television or on the Web, and DVDs are available for purchase. Check out the website for details on scheduled broadcasts and organizing a local showing.
