This year, the Bill of Rights Celebration will feature Rachel Maddow, of MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," and a regular guest pundit on various cable news outlets. "The explosive star of the season," (according to The Nation), Maddow also happens to be a former ACLU staff member! Her intelligent, uncompromising and often very funny commentary - on Air America and then on MSNBC - carried many Americans through the painful years of the Bush Administration and a rough-and-tumble presidential election.
- Watch Rachel charm the socks off John Stewart on the Daily Show!
- See her hold her own with Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report!
- Rachel easily schools Tucker Carlson in this vintage clip...
- ...and dissects myths about who voted how on Prop 8.
As part of our annual celebration, we will be recognizing our 2009 Youth Activist Scholarship Award winners: James Jorgen of Moab, Mariam Meite of Logan, and Kristin Dobbin of Salt Lake City.
These are indeed trying times as we work renew America in the face of great economic challenges and in the aftermath of years of disastrous civil liberties roll-backs. There is much to be done - but also great optimism to be shared! We hope that you will join us for this special evening to celebrate the best our nation has to offer, and to create a new vision of An America We Can Be Proud Of!
