Enjoy mingling and toasting fellow civil liberties and civil rights aficionados, meet new friends, and reconnect with long-lost colleagues. Buy your tickets here! It’s a relatively small venue, so buy your tickets early—or risk missing out on this special, intimate celebration. If you’re already an ACLU member, the cost for drinks and appetizers is just $25. If you have let your membership lapse, or have long been wishing to join, take advantage of a we’re-in-a-festive-spirit special: join the ACLU and the party for just $45.
