Pro-First Amendment organization who speaks out on intolerance, and things that restrict civil liberties. From their website (www.pfaw.org): "People For the American Way organizes and mobilizes Americans to fight for fairness, justice, civil rights and the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution."

Recently they got quite a bit of press for publicizing Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson's remarks on the 700 Club about how PFAW, as well as the ACLU, gays, lesbians, pagans, abortionists, and feminists are responsible for America getting terrorized becuase God is no longer protecting us from evil. (I was at lunch with co-workers last week and we realized we had pretty much every one of those categories covered.)

The president of PFAW is Ralph G. Neas, a lawyer and political activist. The main issues of the group are education, tracking the religious right, free expression, religious liberty, equal rights and building democracy.
