ACLU Throwback: Still Traveling Hopefully
Almost 40 years ago, ACLU founder Roger Baldwin spoke at a National Convocation on Free Speech. Amidst nationwide protests, this excerpt of his taped remarks seems more relevant than ever.
"To travel hopefully is better than to arrive and the true reward is to labor," Baldwin quotes from Robert Louis Stevenson. And he continues," "Well, I've been traveling hopefully with you for all these years. And I'm still traveling hopefully and so is the ACLU. Someday, sometime, while the goal is clear, and the road is hard and progress painful, we are approaching, we are beginning to approach a tolerable world of peace, order and justice."
