Carl Peridier, the Philadelphia ACLU’s vice president, intends to present on citizens’ rights as voters in part so that they can better understand threats against those rights and other civil liberties.
NORTHAMPTON — The American Civil Liberties Union of Philadelphia is preparing to host a local presentation on voting rights.
Carl Peridier, the Philadelphia ACLU’s vice president, is scheduled to discuss some current threats to civil liberties, including an in-depth focus on threats to voting rights, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 at the Free Library of Northampton Township, off Upper Holland Road in the township’s Richboro section.
“Nothing is more fundamental to our democracy than the right to vote, and the ACLU is committed to ensuring that all citizens are able to cast their votes and have them accurately counted,” said reference librarian Linda Rowan in a Monday release.
The presentation, which also is intended to help attendees learn more about their rights as voters, is the third in a 2018 series presented at the Northampton library as part of the Pennsylvania Library Association’s “PA Forward” initiative.
