About Project Liberty
Project Liberty, the NYCLU’s very own TV show, made its broadcast debut spring of 2011 in New York City. While we don’t expect it to win any Emmy awards, Project Liberty provides a sleek and compelling way to stay informed about our work.
The premier episode (seen here) blends the voices of real New Yorkers with NYCLU staff to explore civil rights and civil liberties issues that affect everyone. It examines a new anti-bullying law to protect New York’s public school students, the need to fix the nation’s broken immigration system, and concerns about the NYPD’s unconstitutional and racially biased stop-and-frisk practices.
