The Internet and Public Policy Project (IP3)
of the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy presents:
BALANCING FREEDOM AND SECURITY:
THE PATRIOT ACT AND HOMELAND SECURITY
Thursday, November 20
7:30 PM (reception at 6:30)
Clary Theater at Georgia Tech
The Patriot Act has given rise to a lively policy debate. Citizen groups
and lawmakers on both the right and left have criticized the legislation
for allowing secret searches and the monitoring of citizens' reading
habits, medical history, and financial records. Federal officials argue
that these powers are necessary to ensure homeland security.
This event features a rare face-to-face meeting of a supporter and a
critic of the Patriot Act:
* Randy Chartash, Assistant US Attorney
* Bob Barr, former US Congressman
They will present their respective views and take questions from a
distinguished panel consisting of:
* Jabari Simama, Atlanta Mayor's Office of Community Technology
* Ann Woolner, Bloomberg News
* John Sugg, Creative Loafing
Rachel Tobin Ramos of the Atlanta Press Club will make introductory
comments, and Hans Klein of Georgia Tech will moderate.
The event begins at 7:30 PM and is free and open to the public.
It will be preceded by a reception at 6:30 PM.
The Clary Theater is located in the west side of the Georgia
Tech football stadium, near the base of Tech Tower. For directions
and information about parking, please go to: www.IP3.gatech.edu
This event is part of the fall speaker series of the Internet and Public
Policy Project (IP3) of the School of Public Policy. It is co-sponsored by:
* The Atlanta Press Club
* The Georgia Electronic Commerce Association (GECA)
