    Laura Murphy, Director of Washington Legislative Office of the ACLU

    in Self Help

    This week, Laura Murphy, Director of the Washington Legislative Office for the American Civil Liberties Union.


    Ms. Murphy grew up in a politically active family that advocated citizen action.  After campaigning, working on Capitol Hill, lending her talents to several elected officials, working for several different ACLU offices, she was offered the position of Director of the Washington Legislative office in 1993 and was the first woman, African America, and has been the longest serving Director of the DC Legislative Office.  


    Almost 46,000 individuals are behind bars for non-violent drug offenses and can now apply for clemency.  While there is a strong libertarian movement questioning the war on drugs, many state legislatures grapple with the budgetary implications of an expanding prison population.  Furthermore, many religious movements are advocating redemption.  There are also those who express concern that that the application of justice with respect to the war on drugs comes down with disparate representation regarding minority groups.


    Ms. Murhpy’s observed major changes in the Republican Party since 2008.  Whereas the the party once ostracized members who challenged party orthodoxy, it now seemingly welcomes more dissent under the big tent.  The Democrats, Ms. Murphy observers, have some serious hawkish elements.


    Lately, the ACLU has been at the forefront of the battle against the unprecedented surveillance by government agencies like the NSA, the use of torture by the CIA, and overreach by law enforcement agencies.

    Who Are These People and What do They Do?

    in Politics

    We voted the top of the ballot and we voted name recognition.  We voted for those we saw on television commercials but who were the candidates in the middle of the ballot?  Who were the candidates on the bottom of the ballot?  Many Georgians didn't have a clue who these candidates were or even understood the offices that they would serve.  Tune in this week as we talk with Jeff Bragg, Elected Supervisor of Dekalb Soil and Water Conservation District and Daniel Blackman, Candidate for Public Service Commissioner.  Their seats affect your everyday life more than you could even image!

    In Winnipeg, they don’t hibernate in the Canadian winter, they get out and enjoy it.

We’ll learn about local dining and fun hotels, places to keep warm, and Manitoba’s own version of “The Da Vinci Code” in the legislative building. We’ll also go from the outdoor cold indoors to a hot experience at a Turkish-style hamam. Enjoy the trip! Follow us on Twitter @TravelBrigade.
