Fifty Cent Freedom? That Sucks!

Fifty Cent Freedom? That Sucks!

By SOP newswire2

Dear ACLU Supporter,

It sounds crazy, but it`s true. Your 50 cents a day can help the ACLU make real progress defending freedom and working for justice.

Just this month, our 50 cents a day ? supporters helped us:
  • Fight like mad to get at the truth about high-level Bush administration involvement in torture
  • Escalate our efforts to shut down Guantánamo Bay and end the system of injustice operating there
  • Go all out to make sure one last round of Bush fear-mongering doesn`t convince Congress to grant the President vast new spying powers . . . and more.
Every month, vital projects like these are sustained by the ACLU`s nearly 30,000 Guardians of Liberty -- people who donate $15, $18, or $20 a month to move freedom forward.

Now is the time for you to step up and join them. Make a $15 -- or fifty cents a day -- monthly pledge.

Sign up right now as a Guardian of Liberty monthly donor to help the ACLU earn a $500,000 matching grant!

If we can get to our 1,500 person goal by June 30th, we`ll be well on our way to securing $500,000 from a generous ACLU supporter.

Becoming a Guardian of Liberty by pledging a small donation each month can help the ACLU keep essential projects on track. With just 50 cents a day, you can take a stand for:
  • Fair judicial proceedings -- not commissions that make a mockery of justice.
  • The right to privacy -- not warrantless wiretapping.
  • Respect for the rule of law -- not torture.
Sign up right now as a Guardian of Liberty monthly donor to help the ACLU earn a $500,000 matching grant!

I know you believe in the power of our work -- and I hope you will invest in the power of your own monthly commitment to defend freedom, advance justice, and challenge intolerance.

Sincerely,

Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director
ACLU
