Screen agenda items of selected San Jose City government meetings (New: 01/21/2022)

Our chapter seeks volunteers to screen agenda items of weekly San Jose City Council meetings and a few selected meetings to detect potential civil liberties issues.  The volunteers will report the findings to chapter leaders.  The time commitment is about one hour per week.  If you are interested, please contact us by using the form found in https://acluscv.org/contact/ .  Thank you.
