"The economy intersect is often some form of state discrimination. That unfortunately out our history. The state has acted ways to limit the ability of black people in indigenous people and other people of color from fully accessing the financial benefits of a system that was set up to enrich the middle class. And so we can't just sort of let things stay where they are now. That many of those forms of discrimination to jury discrimination have been removed because we're living with the legacies of so if you think about down payment assistance if you think about the need to put down a down payment of any sort. Fha loans people might say. The lawn is a really great product that allows former americans to access a home all sorts of fees and other things associated with death loan With four people in particular. That actually makes it more difficult for them to access a home. And that's another conversation for future series on housing for example but my point is the various infrastructure that we've created in order to allow americans to live prosperous lives relatives of the rest of the world were denied to black americans and people of color generally continue to be denied based on those legacies. And some kind of discrimination and so that's really where this agenda sits. Postal banking is part of it. Student debt is part of it retrial. To think about the racial wealth gap by thinking about the intersection asking ourselves. What happened that led to this divergence. And what can we do to solve fourth. I know what we're doing through our campaign. You mentioned senator gillibrand in some other members of congress are also interested in supporting postal banking. Is there anything that just normal people can do to support these measures around the systemic equality agenda more specifically postal banking. Absolutely so you can call your senator and tell them i that you want a postal board of governors. That is full represents both parties. It's bipartisan board. And we believe it should be bipartisan. But every member of that bipartisan board has got to be appointed in order for it to serve its function as partisan so call your senators and let them know that this is important to you. Ecu has been engaged in this process for a little over three weeks. Now contacting senator schumer as senator peers michigan particular overseas the homeland security in government fares committee which has oversight over the post office to let them know that we wanna see nominations move forward as quickly as possible and fill the boards that would be the first piece and can you just reiterate why that's so important yes because ultimately if you have a bipartisan board you have the kind of conversation is necessary to have institution that serves all americans regardless of ideology regardless of party right again. It's a constitutional institution and so we want the board to be filled with people who reflect broadly the experiences opinions of americans writ large. And we think once that's been accomplished you'll begin to see more forward thinking in the postal service about how it is. It can continue to fulfill its historical mandate and perhaps adopt things from his past like postal banking in order to meet the needs of the future. I was interviewed the other day. I said we don't expect. The puzzle is the time for essentially to be the twentieth century. That would make any sense. No institutions should be the same hundred years ago talking to the aclu. So we're not the same as we were a hundred years ago nor the post office be so we hope for it but it is the case that we still have a function to serve in. The post office has a function to serving our democracy and so we should always be thinking. What's the next innovation. What's the thing that allows it to persist in succeed live alongside the democracy as it was intended rookie..

"Could not be regulated by school which is the recurring theme that there are certain rights. The court has acknowledged as a student and then different rights and much more liberal rights when you are not at school not in your role as a student which sort of brought up point one other case but i did want to bring up the point about social media because social media use outside of school off school property. Not on school. Time seems to be the area. That is a little bit murkier here. And i'm sort of curious if the courts have ruled around that issue and when is a student not a student anymore in their free time on social media so in some ways. I think that's a question that is presented by this case and our position is that when you're outside of school supervision outside of school hours off of school campus. Not in something that is controlled or supervised by the school. Then you get to be your full. Young south and social media can encompasses all of that. There certainly are instances where you are using social media or the internet for a project or perhaps during school but then it's also the space that young people really used to live their lives. It's the place where people are figuring out their political views expressing their political views organizing composing art figuring out stand up routines songs so much speech happens on social media that even if this case were somehow limited even though by no rule offered by the government could it be even if it were somehow limited to the internet and social media. I would say that for young people. It would almost be a distinction without a difference so much of a young person's life is lived online. And so it's really an incredibly important case even if we're just about snapchat but i'm curious. Is it our position that this isn't the case for brandy but even if it had been you know monday at noon she had been at school and had posted this on her social media account. That is still her personal right her right to self expression because it is technically not part of her role as a student is that is that where we would fall on that. I think it's a much harder question. And i think that it would most likely actually fall on the other side of the line. I don't know what's happening at noon is she. You know. is this a full school day. is she in a class. she in the lunchroom. Maybe there are differences there. But i actually think that specific scenario we would say could be subject to tinker. You had alluded to this case as actually being quite relevant in brandies case. Can you tell us what that cases yes so. In that case a student decided to nominate a friend by giving what the supreme court ultimately called a very vulgar and lewd speech in a mandatory school assembly he used crass sexual language in front of very much a captive audience of hundreds of his classmates. And they're the court said that the school could him in that context in the school captive audience. School assembly context but that it couldn't punish him outside of school and the for that exact same speech and the supreme court made that crystal clear in morse the bunk for jesus case where it basically said that someone could wear a jacket for example saying fuck the draft outside in public even though a student couldn't use comparable language inside a school assembly so that case in the way that the court has talked about it in future cases really makes this in school environment under school supervision. Outside of school distinction that we think a central brandies case crystal-clear right and because brandy was not in school. It was the weekend and she was not at a school event or within school was she was solidly outside those restrictions. Exactly very can we talk a little bit about how the fact of brandy ding a cheerleader. An athlete fits in here because it does seem like student..

"Week. We're revisiting one of our favourite episodes featuring a conversation with the film makers of the documentary crypt camp a disability revolution. Jim lebrecht and nicole. Newnham used archival footage and interviews to tell the story of a summer camp that seated a disability rights movement a movement whose history few no well even though almost fifty percent of americans live with at least one disability. The film was just nominated for an oscar in the category of best documentary feature. So sit back. Relax listen to the podcast and go watch the film. If you haven't already jim nicole. Welcome to add liberty. Thank you chris. Camp tells the story Of a very special summer camp named camp gen ed. It's a summer camp that was for disabled teams. Where jim you're actually a camper. I wonder if you could give us some context about why campaign it was so special and also what life was like for teenagers with disabilities in the seventies writ large. What that background was. Well there's two questions are absolutely very much. I think that i was fifteen during the time that were at the camp in the film this before there were kern pences before. There is any kind of handicapped parking. This is before any kind of protections for civil rights in fat for myself. I was very very lucky that i was in public school. I was an experiment in my school district from the middle of first grade. And really at any point someone could have said. This isn't worth it. And i would have been cadet public school without hanging over my head. Plus the fact that a number of schools. I went to were not wheelchair accessible so i was literally climbing up and downstairs. I remember going to the library with my classmates and they carry my chair for me. Fortunately i was very kind of agile win on my arm so i could handle this. So given that when you go to summer camp and especially captured net which really was a free wheeling of place not that we were like all in danger of these..

"Cycle. That's the efforts that we're working on here. I'm pretty passionate about affordable housing been in a real estate business for about thirty years. So i know that affordable housing can happen. I have tenants that live with me. And i've never raised the rent and they've been with me five ten fifteen years and i do that for a reason because it's my choice. What i can do to help them get ahead so i know it can be done if one person can do it. That's a small portion of people but if our government in our local officials do it collectively we can affect so many more people there are inequities everywhere in equities in healthcare education in transportation and housing. I mean it's a systemic problem. It's not something that we as law enforcement can handle. But do. I agree that that our money's can be better spent in spread out in ways to help remove those obstacles. Yeah absolutely whether it's my budget. I mean i think that's that's our responsibility. I wanna come back to question you know. It is six eighteen at night. You said that in some ways day may just be beginning right now. I would ask how you find support and how you recharge and has your support system helped you through your campaign and through your first month's as a sheriff. Yes so i have a wonderful family unit that i've built since i've been here and when i say family it means a very close friends so from the east coast to the west coast. That's my support system. My community is amazing. This community charleston is amazing. I've never ever hesitated to pick up the phone and just make a phone call to somebody. I know that it's going to have the answer or at least helped me find it. And it's not just the community to the greater law enforcement community. Who is really at this point That there's a breath of fresh air in somebody willing to not just flex muscle but come in and actually find solutions. So i guess. I find my support from just about everywhere. It just every corner of this county..

"And so. Because i just found that if you saw how management teams dealt with adversity How they tried to reorient their business. It just a great place to learn. And that's that's ultimately maybe back to your question why. I don't really get all that stressed about things is You sort of learn. See that Things can always Some of these companies were very very tough situations and and you really appreciated the management groups that were able to just focus on solving the problem and not getting to lost in the stress of the day. So it seems like you're saying that You're you're you're just here for the learning and not for the money. Would you say that's like kind of your advice for students coming out of university just do it for the learn or do it for learning and not for money. I never said that you said that and have no. It's a. I'll tell you one of my one of my early reviews at at ernst and young. I went once go and you get a raise and the partner said here's raised and i thought it was a little lower than it should have been. He goes up. You know it's never about the money. And i said yes. It absolutely is always about the money until you have enough so You know. I think to me money's important right because people have by hosts buy a condo. Buy whatever car. It's important. But i think the thing now that is really adds to it is uni to be an environment where you'll learn 'cause if you're learning and commit to learning yourself you'll move into bigger roles and make more money and then you combine that with only worked for companies where they have a purpose. That don't wanna really advise against his going to work in doing something where you just don't like it because it pays well life's way to short. There's great places to work where you can make good money do well advance where there's a purpose to what they do but working just for money. Yeah i would say is Is not were anybody should go. So that's interesting. I'd love to get your opinion on on the flip side so most of our friends have graduated this point. Some of them took a very high paying. I would say a bit more boring jobs. But what what's your. What's your opinion on a conflict. That students are often met with which is either working exposure or working for free as a as a free internship or something like that because this is a dilemma that were often faced with a as younger workers. Where a company will say. I can't afford to pay you right now. But it'll be great learning and it will greatly increase your chances later. I would just love to get your opinion on that whole concept in general not a big fan of it the Now i think there's always if you said i go do something for three months or six months and it would really position me and a learn a lot and then i think i can jump to that other company that other role and want to get two fair enough. What i'm thinking of if there's someone like me who's getting paid well telling someone like you that i'd like you to work for me for free. Why would i want to work for that person. I don't quite get the. I don't quite get the appeal of that. Just seems like it's a person. I wouldn't wanna work for to begin with and i probably will have no work life balance and as a result not really enjoy what i'm doing. Nsf a clear path to what that gets me to certain.

"Well so you're talking to someone who is levitating from the joy of having seen it power house. Take away from the limitation. Well in so. I say this filtered through that lens we know that there are some republicans who have embraced the idea of decriminalizing marijuana and as i mentioned earlier in the podcast there are couple of things that people who were kind embrace around this issue. The first being the moral part of it that we can write some of the things that we've done some of the inequities that were created by the criminalization of marijuana. But also there's the fiscal incentive there are republicans who are particularly interested in the tax base. Which is not unlike tobacco or alcohol that is taxed and so when those funds can come into the coffers. You better believe there are more people interested in legalizing known interesting. All right well. I'm going to take that as a positive sign that the morale has a shot. I wanna get at where the states currently stand post election. Twenty twenty as we do a postmortem on the election. How did marijuana fair on the state level so remarkably well in some really unexpected places like mississippi that had a ballot measure to legalize marijuana montana which was able to legalize recreational use. Of course new jersey is not as surprising as a state like mississippi. Then we had south dakota so i mean we had some states. That didn't surprise us as much but we also saw what i think is a new way of thinking toward marijuana in some really surprising places. Yeah i wanna pause on mississippi for a minute because not so long ago in two thousand eighteen. I remember working on a case where a man was arrested for having medicinal marijuana on him. He was traveling from oregon to mississippi and he got an eight year sentence for having that marijuana on him which he had the license he had all of the documentation to go from an eight year. Sentence to medicinal use being legal. That's remarkable in a very short period of time. Are you at all surprised by how quickly things are turning not just in mississippi but across the country in terms of public opinion around criminalization of drug use. I am surprise. And i'm not surprised at the same time in those of us who worked in reform for so long. We know these stories but as we see these stories begin to be highlighted and as people begin to understand the effect on real people in their lives and how draconian the cynicism can be. I think we see people saying listen. I don't wanna punish someone that long for something that they legally held in one state but because they cross state lines we can put them in prison forever. These are the kinds of stories that are turning the tide on marijuana legalization. I'm curious you have experiences. Criminal defense attorney. Do you have any stories or examples of cases where you saw firsthand the harm of the war on drugs and how conan those sentences could be just sort of. Lay the groundwork of where we're coming from. Do i has stories former trial lawyer. So most of the work that i did was in federal court. And what i can tell you. Is that the federal sentencing guidelines. Allow that on your third felony conviction for you to receive a minimum sentence of twenty years and up to life in prison and that sounds like. Oh let's put away the kingpins. Here's what that means. It means that a young person usually a young black man was caught twice by the state with a felony amount of marijuana would usually more than an ounce of marijuana on that third time the fans can come in and charge that person with having a career criminal record which means that the minimum that.

"Am curious about is something that you mentioned about the visuals of federal, Asians on streets, and they're wearing army fatigues often unidentified and very heavily armed. The posture is very aggressive and I'm wondering do we have concerns around the that we're seeing you know? After. Two decades of war. We may have become desensitized to the kinds of violence that. Federal Forces military visit upon communities abroad in in Brown and black countries. But there is an intimate connection between the use of. Over militarized? Tactics, equipment. Abroad and. That, which we see happening at home. We know, for example, that there is a program called ten. Thirty three program that essentially takes what they call excess military equipment from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and transferred them to state and local police forces. Billions of dollars have been. Spent under this program and You know for Very Long Times. The discourse has been more around tinkering with this ten thirty, three program. You know what kinds of tactics, what kinds of? Military type weapons and equipment should go to particular communities. And so we see. Armored vehicles in, for example, in one example that stands out vividly for me is the streets of Queens across the river here or in other places outside the homes also immigrants that. Da. Agencies are seeking to grab you know and take away I. Mean. These are the kinds of tactics that have been have been used on black and Brown communities at home immigrant communities at home. And then they started against protesters as well, and you know the time for tinkering is done right armored vehicles on our streets. No So part of. Our colleagues on and we are calling for. And what what. So many allies movements are calling for an end to programs like this. And a point worth making too is that over the decades that we've seen ten thirty, three play out and even pretend thirty three with military esque presences domestically is that it just seems to escalate and we saw that play out in. PORTLAND. At the local law enforcement and the mayor and the governor were all asking for the federal presence to be wound down because it actually was making things worse. That's exactly right. You know just A. Few days ago. The Justice Department announced this new law enforcement initiative that they said again was aimed at quote unquote reducing violent crime in American cities and cooling this fun Operation Legend. A, and what that is is essentially looks like expansive version of the December Twenty nineteen operation. So that's exactly consistent with the constant ratcheting up instead of ratcheting down. and. You were. It looks like the operation that began in December twenty nine, which was essentially under the auspices of the justice. Department is now being joined by Homeland Security Agents, Department of Homeland Security, and that's one of the things that we in our affiliates are on the what..

"And resources, which is what? Movement for black lives and. A bunch of other black led organizations as well as that see you are calling for right now. So by divesting from police by limiting the role of police in communities of color were able to redirect the funds which are as I've said you know extraordinary. We spend a wad of money on law. Enforcement were able to redirect all of that money to other services that allows for us to add decades of racially driven social control and oppression as well as address quality of life problems and social problems at. Roots in ways that strength then impacted communities instead of terrorizing that. And if we are thinking about divesting, obviously, if an organization has less money than they have less reach, and so I think what's implied, there is that part of what the police do is not necessary. What actions what things are we saying you could be doing less of and we would still be so safe. It would be okay to pull these things back. I. Think about you know what drives street level harassment by police, and that we need to really end that street level harassment, and then forcement offense of offenses that drive it, and so these are. No incredibly non serious offenses. I really important to note that you know the FBI has said that there are you know only five percent of crimes for which people are arrested for every year constitute what the FBI consider as the most serious crimes so ninety five percent of arrests that take place each year, which is about ten million arrests. Are for a range of non series offenses. So Offensive Lake you know drug, possession and distribution. Thinking about the criminalization of sex work, thinking about driving offenses including driving without proof of insurance, driving a vehicle with an expired sticker. These are minor criminal walls and civil infractions and. I think something that's important to point out here is that the enforcement of these minor offenses not only leads to the criminalization of black and brown communities across the nation, but also can lead to death and murder, and that is what we've seen in cases like Eric Garner, in cases like George Floyd, who was targeted for such a minor fans that turned out to not even hold up. He was targeted for forgery and he was murdered by the police for that. So we really cut, you know he's ninety five..

"You tell me a little bit about your client. Rocky myers. What was his life like before? He was arrested. Rocky grab he's one of ten children born in New Jersey, his father was a severe alcoholic a lot of abuse. Growing up in the household until the father kind of left the picture for a period of time and rocky was raised a lot by single mom who didn't have money to fade or children a lot of times. He eventually in school was put into special education. In program where he was separately schooled because of intellectual difficulties that he had when rocky moved to Alabama. He was married and had four children. But had also been struggling with a drug addiction problem. They moved to Alabama to kind of separate himself from that from the environment that he was in and his wife had family in the Decatur area. And did you have any history of violence? No, sir. Maybe can you help me understand how you came to this case, I understand that you came across this case. I I did at the office here where the we have the capital habeas unit for the federal defenders, and we were newly formed back in two thousand and three. I believe rocky had his attorney drop his case and he had another person on death row assist. Him. With reading the information that he received from the attorney general's office. They were ready to schedule an execution date for him and told him that if he wanted to file a federal habeas petition. He was going to need to find someone to represent him at that point his friend helped him and called equal Justice initiative here in Montgomery EJ. I called our office and asked us to assist in helping rocky file a federal habeas petition in that was in two thousand and four which we did. So I immediately started working on his case and investigated his case and just to clarify. What is the role of an investigator in case like this? I'm a licensed, clinical social worker and work as an investigator in this office. So what we do is. We review all of the clients cases, we investigate everything that happened that resulted in the conviction. We also investigate. Everything that happened during the sentencing part of the trial, and so after visiting with rocky in heaven and understanding that he had some intellectual difficulties one of my big part in the role of this was to try to find out the information about his learning difficulties. So I met with family members up in New Jersey. I went to the schools up there and try to get records on rocky. And so did a really big investigation into his pass -ocial history. But at the same time because there were issues with his conviction. We also looked at talking to all the witnesses that testified at core. Because so many of them changed their stories. And then we found it's called a Brady claim. So we try to figure that out and do the fact investigation to prove that well when it come back to the myriad. Issues with his conviction. But I'm interested in what kind of picture those conversations painted of rocky Myers said you spoke to a lot of folks in his family, and that he grew up with what kind of picture did they paint of rocky picture that they painted of rocky was a person who was a nice, man. Good, man. Some of what Casey didn't mention about his upbringing was that he did come from a family, very active in their church. There were several people that were gifted musicians and singers. I mean, they actually toward some of the family members as a Christian docile group. So there was a lot of discussion about his faith and his beliefs that he was a good, man. But also that he did struggle having trouble learning and understanding and comprehending things. Description would be he was slow like he was slow at school and couldn't keep up. But then as Casey. Mentioned at some point because I think of his generational family history with addiction rocky became addicted and use drugs, but rocky never was convicted of anything or involved in anything that had any sort of physical altercations or violence. Well, it's really helpful background. Both in terms of what your role is in the kind of work that you do. But also understanding a bit more about Mr..

"And so that's a part of the movie that as we were making kept getting louder and louder seeing dick Durbin question Cavanaugh about unitary executive theory looking back at Alito being questioned about it hearing the AG has been questioned by congress. And I think this is thing that Cheney certainly stood for he always believed an expansion of executive powers, and so on a legal literal level, there's that side of the movie on an emotional storytelling level. I think it's once again, the story of we have to citizens always be checking power that if we take our eyes off the ball, even for a couple years just assume power spreading whenever we're not vigilant with it as soom it's spreading and it's becoming unchecked. And that makes it a potential danger. And we just have to always be demanding transparency. And whenever we don't have that transparency. We should be very very concerned. Well, wanted to end our dramatic in deep discussion with a couple of lighter questions one. On behalf of my dad, who's a fly fishing enthusiasts. I wanted to ask about your use of the fly fishing metaphor throughout the story. There's a scene in the midst of the post nine eleven attack chaos, a close up of a catfish. I think under the water and later on in the final credits, you use flies as the sort of visual hook so to speak. Can you talk about why you chose to fixate on the the fly fishing, and can you give my liberal dead permission to continue to engage in this? Despite the fact that Dick Cheney's favorite pastime. Well, there's a quote from Lynne Cheney, and we played with the idea of putting it in the front of the movie, but it felt too obvious. She just said, look if you want to understand my husband, you have to know one thing. He's apply. Fishermen it explains. Everything about them. There's a patience to it. There's a level of catching every detail methodical nature. And it's the thing that Dick Cheney had Donald Rumsfeld didn't have Donald Rumsfeld as much louder much more impatient Lynn to a little bit more combative, although very brilliant. And the thing that Cheney had was he knew how to take a loss like when he tried to push H W Bush and the ninety one Iraq war to not seek the approval of congress of the UN and not do a coalition H W told him, no way, you're crazy and Cheney fell into the mode of good foot soldier and did his job as secretary defense. He understood how to take losses and move on. And I think the key to the entire movie is really the conversation. He has with his daughters when they're very young early in the movie. And they say are are we tricking the fish, and he says you have to find out what the fish wants. And then you use that to catch the fish. And the daughter says a good trick replaying or a bad trick replaying. And he says it's not really either it's fishing. We catch the fish. And then our family gets to eat. So that to me is is the way Cheney views the world, it's all very methodical. It's about process it's about moving forward. There's no real good or bad to it. It's just what he does. And I think in some ways the Republican party took on as well. And that's what those fishing wars are in the end, you see that some of them are like a bible with a hook in it. Like, they'll use religion to get supporters. You see the nine eleven towers which Cheney used to gain power. That's why there's a lawyer and that you see TV with a hook. And they'll use the media to get power. You see the White House? You see a surveillance camera, and these are all the ways that they can hook power. So it's two fold. It's the lore that you use to convince people, and then it's also. Chinese personality. That's slow THAAD ical personality. It's not a good trick or a bad trick. It's fishing in the final question picks up on the of powerful people and their daughters. Why do you think Jared Kushner and vodka Trump walked out?.

"Let's turn to the issue of temperament. Certainly what struck me most about the hearings was that judge cavenaugh came in in a mode that I would like into snarling and began with a very partisan shot across the bow about those hearings being related to Clinto Nian conspiracy the ACLU, as you mentioned, has sued about every American president in history. Did the board discuss the potential negative consequences for a legal organization that practices in front of the court after formerly opposing a nominee who may very well end up sitting on that court and who now has made plain intention to remember those who have stood against him? Well, I can say that in two thousand. And six when the board decided to drop making an exception for supreme court nominees. That's another explanation that was given that we do very frequently appeared before the supreme court, and it's very important to us that we are regarded as a neutral, new affair. Litigate. I can say that both Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas have commented over time that they read a c. l. u. briefs in cases because they regard us as an honest broker, I think those risk Leo's words. So I think it's very important to us and a number of people had said, well, we don't really want to prejudge justices and Ben appear before them after we've said, we don't want you on the supreme court, right? That was one of the arguments in two thousand six when the board was just discussing whether or not to make an exception to the policy and that argument was raised in a what if we were to oppose judge Cavanaugh, would he then. Bear a grudge and vote against us just because we opposed him. And there were a lot of members of questioned how true that is impurity. I don't think we really have a lot of evidence about whether or not a judge would tend to you hold a grudge against a particular organization that had opposed him or her. And I think in some ways it may be plausible to say that maybe a judge would bend over backwards you to not show bias against you. So I think that wasn't an important part of the decision here in terms of concern. But what you're saying that temperament, I think there are two parts to temperament. One part is just our is somebody explosive. And here I saw recently somebody dug up a quote of what Senator Lindsey. Graham said about sunny soda Myer at her confirmation hearing, and he said she was so angry. She was so explosive, and she didn't have the temperament to be on the supreme court and it's standing. So I thought it was really pretty interesting that Jude Cavanaugh would be judge played a different standard and the standard that at least he applied to soda Myer. But I think that the ACLU wouldn't necessarily want to go there. So when I say temperament, I don't necessarily mean just that. You know, he has a demeanor that sometimes he might yell more if somebody else that not necessarily something that would disqualify them from being a judge. It's not good. But what in my mind, what board members were more concerned about was the part of what we're generally calling part of quote temperament but is really more about partisanship. Can that be fair up? Cheap touches Roberts famously said at his confirmation hearings that he's tested on pyre, and he just calls the balls and strikes will if you had somebody you're thinking of hiring as an empire before the bulk game, and they started screaming about yet how much they disliked one of the teams it you wouldn't hire them. So the possibility of partisanship here I think was what was a main concern to some board members. The reason I don't think we're reverting to the business of always deciding whether or not to oppose cream court justices is that. This is almost like a perfect storm. We have the credible allegations of sexual misconduct. We have the inadequate investigation where you can't really tell what evidence there is big picture. We have the additional allegations which have not been investigated or presented to the committee, and then we have judge Kavanagh's own testimony, which ethic show several different things. It does show an explosive temperament, but what worries me more is that there are suggestions that he would be going into the supreme court as partisan. And we have concerned about whether there is a bias there that would disable him from doing the job of being fair to all lit against..

"I'm Lee Rowland and from the view, this is at liberty. The podcast where we discussed today's most important civil rights and civil liberties questions. On August twelfth, twenty seventeen a now infamous gathering of racists. Confederate supporters k. k. k. sympathizers and Neo Nazis gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia local resident. Jason Kessler had obtained a permit for the group to rally around a statue of confederate general. Robert Lee in the cities emancipation park the day was a disaster city officials declared the assembly unlawful before it even began dispersing the planned ralliers and an even greater number of counter protesters into the streets. Violence erupted throughout the city, and Heather higher was murdered by a man who drove his car into a crowd of anti-racists. Prior to the rally, the ACLU of Virginia had successfully represented Kessler in court in a first amendment lawsuit. When just days before the widely planned event, city officials attempted to revoke the groups permit to force them away from Manson. Patient park the ACO us representation of Kessler has renewed debate internally and externally about the ACO us role as an organization dedicated to free speech and racial Justice can organization be truly dedicated to both equality and liberty one year out from Charlottesville where in the studio with probably the two best people to have exactly that discussion, Dennis Parker is director of the sale use racial Justice program. And Ben Wisner directs the group speech privacy and technology project. And in the interest of full disclosure, I, myself was a free speech attorney at the national seal y-you for much of my career. So Ben and Dennis are both my friends and former colleagues, Dennis Ben welcome. Thank you. Thanks -ly. Before we delve into the heart of Charlottesville and the issues it raises, tell me and Dennis, maybe I'll start with you. Do you generally see your work fighting racial discrimination as fundamentally intention with the other work of the fighting for free expression? Mill? I don't think it's fundamentally intention, and in fact, much of our work is done with Ben's project, and we've been able to use their work to support the actions of communities of color, trying to protect their interests. So it's not necessarily intention. I think part of the problem has come up with internally and externally with a perception that if there is a conservative reactionary. Racist group that those are the cases that the ACLU is associated with doing. And I think part of what we have to do is to find a way to tell the whole story of what we do, but also internally, look at the way we operate to make sure that you know, we always protect the interest of the communities of color and make sure that they can exercise free speech. But that requires really a careful approach. And that's been the subject of the discussions we've had internally and and externally. And how about you? Same question. How do you see big picture the ACLU work on speech and race fitting together? I think it's an important question, and I want to say at the outset that I both understand and experience the feelings and emotions
