BORDC Initiatives

By: Harry Waisbren

BORDC has three exciting initiatives in progress, and discussing them will certainly be big part of our upcoming organizing call Tuesday, Feb. 2 (let us know when you can make it if you haven’t already).

  • The most timely of these initiatives is their grassroots lobby day to oppose domestic spying on 2/3, an event we are very proud to say we are cosponsoring. There is a conference call I’ll be attending this Friday, and I’ll relay more details/information as I receive it.
  • They also have a sign-on letter buttressing the arguments the grassroots supporters will be making in person on 2/3 during the lobby day.
  • Lastly, they have constructed model legislation to limit local law enforcement’s domestic spying (among other) activities. It offers an offline opportunity to any engaged groups in the same jurisdiction, and is designed to enable broad coalitions among civil rights, immigrant rights, and civil libertarian groups to connect within their cities or towns.

More to come on all of this. In the meantime, if you’re in the DC area, do your best to join the lobby day next Wednesday!

    A few days ago I stumbled upon your site while searching yahoo for tips and tricks for bowling. Your site wasn��t exactly what I was looking for, but it was packed with information otherwise. Now I find myself continuing to read more and more posts and I love it!
