Now more than ever, we must ask ourselves:
who are the WE in We the People?

The ACLU was prepared for the constitutional crises we now face in a way the rest of the country wasn’t. It Occurs to Me That I Am America celebrates the undaunted efforts of the ACLU. For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has stood as the nation’s premier defender of freedom and justice for all, working with and battling against American presidents of both parties to ensure that our country makes good on its founding premise as the land of the free.
“We are both thrilled and humbled to see that so many great writers and artists have come together to support the ACLU as we confront the greatest civil liberties crisis of our time. History has shown the crucial role artists play in challenging injustice during times of crisis. This anthology promises to be both a powerful tool in the fight to uphold our values and a tribute to the remarkable voices behind it.”
—Anthony D. Romero,
Executive Director of the ACLU
