3. More
I am not sure how "effective" these groups are, since I haven't heard much about them litigating anything.

I could simply just be mis-informed.

People for the American Way

The Alliance for Democracy
http://www.thealliancefordemocracy.org

MAINstream Coalition
http://www.mainstreamcoalition.org

The American Humanist Association
http://www.americanhumanist.org

The Institute for Humanist Studies
http://www.humaniststudies.org /

Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting
http://www.fair.org /

United for Peace and Justice
http://www.unitedforpeace.org /

The Council for Secular Humanism

Here are some more, but I don't know if they count as "liberal":

I am in Washington D.C. for a semester, and I needed a handy list of groups to look to for internships. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle! ;)
