"Itawamba school officials are trying to turn Constance into the villain who called the whole thing off, and that just isn't what happened. She's fighting for everyone to be able to enjoy the prom. The government, and that includes public schools, can't censor someone's free expression just because some other person might not like it."

--Kristy Bennett, legal director for the ACLU of Mississippi

It's driving me nuts that they're not getting any links in the stories I've read.

If we can't find and support our local grassroots organizations, which are almost certain to be on the case before the story breaks, we're lost. Truly.

The ACLU of Mississippi was one of the organizations that founded the MSSC two years ago and still serves as their fiscal agent.
