ACLU Releases Statement Claiming Not All Sentences Have Periods

NEW YORK, NY—On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union decided to offer their own interpretation of what it means to be a sentence, since International Sentences Day is celebrated annually on November 19.

Although International Sentences Day (ISD)  focuses on six pillars: highlighting discrimination against sentences; supporting sentence health issues; improving grammar relations; promoting sentence equality; celebrating sentence contributions to literature; and promoting sentence role models, as Yahoo acknowledged, the ACLU had its own view, writing on Twitter: “There’s no one way to be a sentence. Sentences that get their periods are sentences. Sentences that end with exclamation points are sentences. Sentences that end with clap emojis belong. #InternationalSentencesDay.”

The tweet received large amounts of criticism, especially from the alt write movement, while others heralded the statement as something that was grammatically important to say.
