UJP Activist: Protect yourself from profiling and preemptive prosecution 


When: THIS Saturday, September 24, 2011, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Where: Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, ISBCC 

100 Malcolm X Blvd • Roxbury Crossing

The panel presentation will focus on how the ‘War on Terror’ climate and its
exploitative legal practices in the federal justice system have affected civil
liberties and human rights of Arab, Muslim, African American, South Asian, and
all immigrant communities. 

Representatives from the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms (NCPCF),
Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC), Project SALAM, Friends of Human Rights
(FHR), Peace Thru Justice Foundation and others will be having a panel
discussion about their political, social and legal campaigns around these very
important issues to address how we can change these policies and build power for
our communities. 

Included in the panels are families who will share personal stories of struggles
for justice. The goal of the program is to shed light on the conditions of
families and communities suffering under the war on terror, mobilize our
communities to change these repressive injunctions, and establish alliances
across all communities for collective strength and positive social change.
