As Congress is largely unable to protect our civil liberties in a culture of increasing government surveillance, whistleblowers and the independent media have become a powerful check against government power.

Join us for a timely discussion with a distinguished panel including Daniel Ellsberg, Norman Solomon, Trevor Timm, Marjorie Cohn and Ahmed Ghappour.


Tickets are $12 and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
