Civil Rights Protection

The Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC) is leading the charge in encouraging communities around the country to enact some form of a Civil Liberties Safe Zone resolution. As of January 2003, at least 21 cities have passed some form of the resolution and similar efforts were underway in 26 states. The resolutions generally disallow the use of community resources to implement certain requirements of the 2002 USA Patriot Act, The Homeland Security Act and other executive orders passed after the terrorist attacks of 2001.
