VIDEO: Blasey Ford Accepts Award for Courage from ACLU, Cites Colin Kaepernick

The ACLU of Southern California presented their “Courage Award” to Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

The ACLU of Southern California is proud to present the Roger Baldwin Courage award to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for her brave testimony before Congress last year, a shining act of courage.

Christine Blasey Ford:

“When I came forward last Sept., I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen, providing information to the Senate that I believed would be relevant to the Supreme Court nomination process. I thought anyone in my position would of course do the same thing.”

“I had the example of Anita Hill, the values instilled in me by my parents and growing up in Washington, D.C., I had a responsibility to my country, to my fellow citizens, to my students, to my children, to live the values that I try to teach them.” — Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

’m thankful that sharing my experience prompted over 200,000 people from across our country and around the world to send messages of support, many handwritten, sharing their own stories of assault and abuse.

Christine Blasey Ford also honored Colin Kaepernick.

Two years ago at this event, Colin Kaepernick at this event said, “We all have an obligation, no matter the risk and regardless of the reward to stand up for fellow men and women. He quoted Frederick Douglass saying, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
