To protect the right to freedom of assembly, Mary Ellen Schutz and Dave St. Amant for protecting the First Amendment right to freedom of assembly at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Together, they have organized ACLU of Wisconsin Legal Observers to act as legal witnesses during the Solidarity Sing Along and other events at the Capitol, such as hearings on controversial topics. They have been tireless volunteers, giving many hours of their time, even in hostile circumstances.

Volunteerism is deeply important to Mary Ellen and she also contributes time to other local organizations, while Dave is invested in undoing the “disrepair of our justice system.”
