ACLU: Presidential Power Online Live Town Hall (Feb 20th)

From the Desk of Anthony D. Romero
MONDAY at 11 a.m.: Join Our Live Town Hall

Dear Friend,

Please join us live online tomorrow morning (Monday, February 20), at 11 a.m. ET, for a national town hall discussion on spying, secrecy and presidential power.

View the live webcast from George Washington University, where I will be joined by moderator Marvin Kalb, a panel of distinguished guests and a live audience to discuss the controversy over illegal NSA spying on Americans.

Tomorrow at 11 AM ET/8 AM PT, go to Presidential Power

Or, visit:

This Site

Join the nationwide online audience and submit your own questions for the panel. Help us break through White House misinformation and learn the truth about spying,
secrecy, the Constitution and violations of federal law.

The event will be moderated by Marvin Kalb, Senior Fellow at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy and Faculty Chair for the Kennedy School's Washington programs. Introductory remarks and closing will be given by
Caroline Fredrickson, Director of the ACLU's Washington Legislative Office.

Panelists will include former White House counsel John W. Dean, Harvard Professor Laurence H. Tribe, Jim Harper of the CATO Institute and Mary DeRosa of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Please also sign our online Demand the Truth petition and join the call for real answers from the Bush Administration about illegal spying on Americans. Sign on at:

Demand the Truth

Make sure to join us live tomorrow and submit your own questions and comments about the president's program of illegal NSA surveillance, secrecy and our constitutional freedoms.

I look forward to your participation in this important event. It is not to be missed. I hope you can join us.
