An Evening with ROBERT SCHEER, Renowned Journalist, Author, Columnist, Professor
In Conversation With
ALEECIA M. McDONALD, Stanford Center for Internet and Society
and
PAUL GEORGE, Director, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center

From wiretapping to lax social media security, from domestic spy drones to sophisticated biometrics, both the United States government and private corporate interests have dangerously undermined the delicate balance between national security and individual sovereignty.

Without privacy, Scheer argues, there is neither freedom nor democracy. The freedom to be left alone embodies the most basic of human rights. Yet this freedom has been squandered in the name of national security and consumer convenience.

WE MUST CHALLENGE THE ASSUMPTION that protecting national security requires sacrificing the constitutional rights of the individual. The technology of surveillance, Scheer warns, represents an existential threat to the liberation of the human spirit.

Free and open to all. Contributions will be requested. Wheelchair accessible.
