Thank you for attending the ACLU of Massachusetts’ 2014 Bill of Rights Dinner on May 12! Over 800 guests were inspired by the courage and determination of patriotic whistleblowers and 2014 Roger Baldwin Award recipients Thomas Drake, Cathy Harris and Daniel Ellsberg—and surprise guest Edward Snowden, appearing by video with a special message for attendees!

Political comedian W. Kamau Bell made us laugh and think with his provocative comedy, and ACLU supporter Nicki Nichols Gamble offered to match, double or triple gifts made in response to her challenge, up to a total of $100,000! If you didn’t give or pledge at the Dinner, you can still do so now!

Gamble Challenge: Whether you're fulfilling a pledge made at the Dinner or making a new gift, you can have your contribution to the ACLU matched through the Gamble Challenge!

2014 Bill of Rights Dinner Survey: Please share your feedback on the Dinner by answering a few short questions in our 2014 Bill of Rights Dinner survey—exercise your right to free speech to tell us what you thought, and what you'd like us to keep in mind as we (soon) begin planning next year's event!

Cooperating law firms and Dinner sponsors: Thank you to everyone who makes our work possible. View a full list of our sponsors.

Thank you, again—we look forward to seeing you at our 2015 Bill of Rights Dinner, and hopefully often between now and then!
