The ACLU recently honored Vicki Saporta and NAF members June Ayers, Gloria Gray, and Dalton Johnson in Alabama with the 2015 Roger Baldwin Medal of Liberty. The Medal of Liberty is conferred in recognition of a lifetime achievement on behalf of civil liberties, or, in exceptional cases, for a significant current contribution to civil liberties. Named for one of the organization’s founders, the award is the highest honor the ACLU bestows.
