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 on Friday, March 20, at 7 p.m.

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.
