From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Committee Against Repressive Legislation (NCARL) is a national not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to defending the right of political dissent.

Based in Washington, D.C., NCARL was founded in 1960 as a group opposing the House Committee on Un-America Activities (known popularly by the acronym HUAC). Called The National Committee to Abolish HUAC, the group changed its name to NCARL after the committee was abolished.

Today, NCARL describes its work as follows:

"Since September 11, 2001, NCARL has worked to educate people about some of the worst excesses of law and policy aimed at stopping terrorism which, we argue, are largely ineffective and simultaneously a huge step back on First Amendment and due process areas. We helped organize the first national conference of advocates for local bill of rights resolutions – Grassroots America Defends the Bill of Rights – October 18-19, 2003."

NCARL publishes a monthly newsletter, archived online.
