According to this announcement, and this one as well, which notes:

The American Civil Liberties Union will announce the opening of its new South Carolina Office July 2 at a press conference and ceremonial ribbon-cutting that will include Charleston Mayor Joe Riley and a host of other political and community leaders.

The press conference, intentionally timed to coincide with Independence Day as a way of highlighting the ACLU’s historic commitment to preserving the principles contained in the Bill of Rights, will be held at Charleston’s Old Exchange Building – site of South Carolina’s ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788. The event will mark the official opening of the South Carolina Office and the creation of a new powerful voice for civil liberties across the state.

At the press conference, Graham Boyd, a native South Carolinian and the Interim Executive Director of the ACLU South Carolina Office, will announce the details of what will be a broad, non-partisan approach to defending constitutional rights in the state and new commitments to engaging the state’s civil liberties community and seeking and responding to the opinions of all South Carolinians.
