Flights & Rights: National Security and Surveillance

Friday, September 11, 2020 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Flights & Rights: National Security and Surveillance
Join us in examining the Patriot Act, 19 years later and counting. Hastily passed 45 days after 9/11 in the name of national security, the Patriot Act was the first of many changes to surveillance laws that made it easier for the government to spy. By expanding the authority to monitor, the Patriot Act effectively turns ordinary Americans into suspects.
Michele Storms (ACLU-WA Executive Director), Jennifer Lee (ACLU-WA Technology & Liberty Project Manager), and Sahar Fathi (former ACLU-WA board member) will share a historical overview and explore how this affects Washingtonians today.
Special guest Tana Lin, President of the ACLU-WA Board of Directors, joins us this month.

Registration required.
