ACLU forum live for all in Asheville

Can’t make it to tonight’s ACLU forum on the right to dissent? Well, WPVM-103.5 has you covered. The local radio station will be carrying the forum live beginning at 7pm, and have it available for download afterwards. You can listen online here.

For those who want to attend in person, the forum will be held in UNCA’s Highsmith Student Union (room 221). Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan and Asheville Police Chief Bill Hogan, who have both faced controversy in recent months over incidents involving protesters, will be there, as will a panel including city representatives, a student activist and legal and civil-liberties experts. The forum is sponsored by more than 20 local organizations.
