From the CBLDF site:
It’s that time of year where the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund says thank you to our friends and members! We hope you can join us on Friday, December 5 for our Member Appreciation Holiday Party at the Village Pourhouse in NYC on 64 3rd Ave at 11th Street.
This party is free for all current year CBLDF members. Because of your support, we marched to victory in defense of Rome, GA retailer Gordon Lee, and we are currently able to come to the aid of manga collector Christopher Handley in Iowa, who faces federal charges for possession of comics the government alleges to be obscene.
Come out to rub elbows with comics' best and brightest, enjoy raffles, giveaways, gift bags and more!
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go (the holiday three-events-in-one-night-extravaganza has begun), but if you’re in NYC and are going, have a great time celebrating free speech!
