Terri Burke, Executive Director of the ACLU of Texas
“Righting Texas’ Civil Wrongs”
Terri Burke has been Executive Director of the ACLU of Texas for two years. A lifelong journalist, Terri was previously a political and investigative reporter. Including positions with the Dallas Morning News and the Austin American-Statesman. Despite urban area election results that suggest a more progressive population, our legislature and our courts continue to bow to a small percentage who would rewrite the U.S. Constitution to match their extremist views. Only through integrating grassroots education with lobbying and litigation can we stop the shotgun assault on the Constitution. She’ll discuss the ACLU of Texas’ strategic campaign to change state laws.
