Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of Democracy

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Herman, the national president of the American Civil Liberties Union, takes a hard look at the human and social costs of the War on Terror and how civil liberties have rapidly eroded in post-9/11 America—offering stories of ordinary people, whose activities should’ve been protected under the First Amendment, who have been caught up in the government's surveillance dragnet. Herman makes a compelling case for why we must remain vigilant if we are to hold on to our age-old freedoms. Copresented with Powell’s Books.
