Hi folks! We held up this edition of Open Media Boston a bit to add an 
op-ed by Nancy Murray of the ACLU of Massachusetts on the need for all 
organizations of good conscience to sign on to a letter to push Gov. 
Deval Patrick to say NO to signing onto to Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement's so-called "Secure Communities" plan.

If an organization that you work with would like to sign the letter the 
ACLU will be sending to the Governor (you can read it under “Take 
Action” on http://aclum.org/s-comm), please send your endorsement to 
nancy at aclum.org or telephone 617 482 3170 x 314.
