Invitation to Pamplin Grove 2013 is honored on SnapFame.com

I was honored on snapfame.com, a blog by Jan Carpenter Tucker a friend and client of 30 years, for the diversity displayed in the invitation to my "10th Annual Community Gathering at Pamplin Grove".  Artist Oli Winward deserves the bulk of the credit for how he chose to depict diversity in the people represented in his wonderful cover illustration.

2012 ACLU Patriot of the Year Award

It was my great honor to receive the 2012 Patriot of the Year  Award from the Redwood Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union

I accepted the award in memory of my father Paul, a life long card-carrying-member of the ACLU




This photo was entered into evidence as Plaintiff's Exhibit One over the objections of the City's legal counsel.  I think he feared it would too simply state our case and the absurdity of the City's broadly over reaching, and as we proved, cleary unconstitutional law.
Since winning our case, the city can no longer outlaw the holding of a sign based solely on the content of the message.
