Folder 58, Patrick Lee Holden Case, 1993.

dc.descriptionThe American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonpartisan non-profit organization whose stated mission is "to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States." It works through litigation, lobbying, and community education. Founded in 1920 by Crystal Eastman, Roger Baldwin and Walter Nelles, in 2010 the ACLU has over 500,000 members and has an annual budget over $100 million. Local affiliates of the ACLU are active in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The ACLU provides legal assistance in cases in which it considers civil liberties to be at risk. Legal support from the ACLU can take the form of direct legal representation, or preparation of amicus curiae briefs expressing legal arguments (when another law firm is already providing representation). This collection pertains to its Lubbock Chapter.
dc.descriptionThe collection consists of paperwork and materials relating to the Lubbock chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, though also including material from the state and national levels of the organization primarily from the 1970's. It contains letters, flyers, pamphlets, news clippings, legal forms, directories, minutes and notes from Board meetings, and other materials. There are also references and documentations of court cases in Lubbock from the 1960's and 70's, involving students from both Lubbock high school and Texas Tech University on topics ranging from dress code regulation to segregation and the Catalyst Newspaper.
