New and notable website from LDF

I am pleased to report that the NAACP Legal Defense Fund has this impressive new website, "The Defenders Online."  Here is how the website describes itself: 

For more than 60 years, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) has fought to make the promise implicit in the hallowed words of the Constitution a reality and help America reach its highest potential.

Now, LDF is expanding its responsibility and challenge as the nation’s premier civil rights law firm through TheDefendersOnline.com, a new forum for the discussion of those ideas that have always been at the heart of America’s civil rights struggle: race, justice, equality and democracy.

LDF plans to be a dynamic force in the national discourse about current events, examining key issues in the United States and around the world with contributions from a stellar and diverse mix of attorneys, leaders, authors, activists, educators, novelists, students, poets, journalists, elected officials, bloggers and others who have compelling insights about the progress that inspires and the problems that challenge us today.

The section of the website I will be checking regularly is under this tab for Criminal Justice, though I have also noted a lot of cool content under This Week in History.
