Roaring Fork Cultural Council Speaker’s Night

The Roaring Fork Cultural Council is excited to be bringing Nathan Woodliff-Stanley, executive director of Colorado’s ACLU, to the Thunder River Theatre at 7 p.m. Friday, March 20. There is a lot of concern in our country surrounding the complex decisions regarding our constitutional rights and how to deal with terrorism. Woodliff-Stanley will address these concerns. The balance between civil liberties and surveillance is a hot topic right now. RFCC chair Jim Calaway will ask some leading questions, which will be a sound springboard for this topic. The discussion portion will last approximately 40 minutes. Then questions from our audience will be entertained for an additional 30 minutes. Tickets, information about the speaker and the RFCC is available at
