Profiles in Courage

14 Jun

This week’s dose of verbal reality takes us to the ongoing national convention of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS), a progressive legal counter to the far more well established Federalist Society and their lot of Constitutional constructionists (and a group I’ve been proud to be involved with since my 2L year in law school back in ’04).

Profiling courage against the incredibly un-democratic Citizens United decision from the Roberts Court, this highly-memorable quote was taken from remarks delivered today by Professor Burt Neuborne, Professor of Civil Liberties and Legal Director at the New York University School of Law’s Brennan Center for Justice.

From the Twitterverse, this tweet today from advocacy attorney Jeff Clements, co-founder and President of Free Speech for People.
