60YrsOfVigilance: The Gala
Thank you to everyone who joined us in making our 60th Gala a huge success! Our keynote speaker, Luis Mancheno, stole the show with his remarkable story of resiliance. The "Raymond J. Pettine Civil Libertarian of the Year" award was presented to the entire corps of the ACLU of RI's lay leadership from 1959-2019. Six former Board Chairs accepted the awards on the corps' behalf: John Blakeslee, Cherie Cruz, Tom Ramsbey, Allan Shine, Vivian Weisman and Richard Zacks. More photos here.
