The AFJ team had a great time at this year’s Netroots Nation convention meeting with top progressive bloggers, activists, organizers, and elected officials. The overall sense of this year’s convention is that we have entered into a progressive era in this country and if we continue our hard work we can achieve the change America needs.
One of the ways to ensure that the future is fair for all Americans is to avoid repeating the mistakes of our past. That is why we are calling on Attorney General Holder to launch a full-scale investigation of the “Torture Memos.”
For more about our vision for the future you can watch the video below featuring AFJ President Nan Aron on the Netroots panel “After Sotomayor: How Progressives Reshape Our Debate Over the Constitution and the Supreme Court.”
