  • The "War on Terror" and The Constitution (PDF, 6.7 MB): This booklet, published by BORDC, details how "war on terror" policies have allowed the government to violate the Constitution and explains how those violations affect each of us as individuals. Printed and bound copies with full color covers is available for purchase ($3 each plus shipping; bulk discounts available).
  • If you or a friend teach K-12, visit our page of resources for K-12 educators and students, which includes links to resources for teaching about civil liberties, the USA PATRIOT Act, discrimination, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
  • Stay informed! Visit our blog for news and information about government secrecy, surveillance, detention, and torture.
  • Inform local business about how the PATRIOT Act and other anti-terrorism policies harm businesses and what they can do to protect themselves and their clients. Bring them copies of BORDC's booklet, The PATRIOT Act and American Business.
  • Show a documentary, put on a play, or read a book from our list of recommended resources.
  • Copy fliers about the issue and distribute them at events.
  • Download, print, and distribute bookmarks with the Bill of Rights printed on them to your local schools and libraries. (Ask for permission first!). Available in English and Spanish.
