Honor true patriots
Every month, BORDC honors an individual who has done outstanding work in support of civil liberties and the rule of law in his or her community.
This month, the Patriot Award goes to Jayel Aheram from Alaska, who is currently living in Southern California pursuing a degree in Journalism. Aheram is a libertarian journalist, blogger, photographer, anti-war activist, and US military veteran who has taken on grassroots activism across California to protect civil liberties.
