Friday 9/17/21 “The Day Before!”
3pm-5pm Rally to End Policing for Profit
“Under Pennsylvania’s civil asset forfeiture laws, the government can legally take property it claims is connected to illegal activity but without actually charging, much less convicting, the property owner of a crime. Prosecutors and police who make decisions about when to pursue civil forfeiture are then allowed to keep 100% of the forfeiture profits for their own budgets, meaning they have a direct financial incentive to forfeit as much property as possible.”
Join us in front of the Federal Courthouse in Williamsport for a rally against civil asset forfeiture. We need to end policing for profit!
5:30pm-10pm SMASH for Charity Mixer
Beginning at 5:30pm, join us for a Social Mixer in the Break Room lounge and adjoining restaurant for light refreshments and good conversation with many of our guest speakers for Perspectives on Freedom.

Perspectives on Freedom
Bald Birds Brewing Company: 220 Shaffer Lane, Jersey Shore, PA 17740
Liz Terwilliger for Congress aims to increase public engagement in conversations about issues that affect our freedoms. To that end, the LT4C campaign committee is hosting Perspectives on Freedom an issues based event where guest speakers and members of the public will converge on a variety of topics. The format for most sessions will be one of discussion. The guest speakers/discussion leaders will start off the conversation and then open the floor to audience participation. (Note: All sessions will be recorded.)
Space in each break out session is limited, so we are assigning numbers to registrants. The earlier you register, the lower your number! The lower your number the higher your priority in session selection. We’ll have specific session selection in August. Register today to get your number!
