Rage Against The Machine/Prophets Of Rage guitarist Tom Morello has been chosen as the first musician to be named an ambassador for the American Civil Liberties Union‘s ‘Campaign For Smart Justice.’ According to the ACLU, that initiative seeks to champion a ‘nationwide effort to reduce the U.S. jail and prison population by 50% and to combat racism in the criminal justice system.’ Speaking to the Los Angeles Times on the matter, Morello commented:

“I’ve been a longtime supporter of the ACLU, and in these troubled times, I want to do everything I can to tilt the fulcrum of justice in the right direction. For a century, the ACLU have been champions of freedom of speech, civil rights equality and justice and have tirelessly, in a nonpartisan way, stood up for principles. I’m proud to have this position.”
