Total Award: $5,000 over 1 year
For renewed support of the Securities and Civil Liberties Task Force Arab-American Outreach Project. The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation (ACLU) will continue to reach out to Arabs, Muslims, and South Asians through a program of public educations, legal assistance, and advocacy. The ACLU will (1) provide Arabs, Muslims, and South Asians with essential legal advice, a better understanding of their guaranteed rights and liberties, and support ACLU advocates from within these communities; (2) ensure that Arabs, Muslims, and South Asian voices are heard by telling their stories to the public; (3) push to dismantle biased policies and discriminatory application of the law; and (4) continue to work with ACLU affiliates to expand their dockets to include more post-9/11 Arab/Muslim/South Asian work.
