• Can these tensions be resolved in a world of government and corporate surveillance?
• What can librarians do to promote reforms and community involvement?
• Can or will Congress actually seek reforms to the nation’s surveillance laws and practices?

Understand the role of libraries in the public debate and how library supporters must be involved in advocacy and privacy education. Find out how the Office for Intellectual Freedom’s ‘Choose Privacy Week’ can help you present public programs and promote dialogue in your community on surveillance and other aspects of privacy. Hear from ALA’s Office of Government Relations about the implications of different approaches to surveillance reforms, including potential amendments to the USA PATRIOT Act, government surveillance and transparency, and the role of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Featuring Barbara Jones, Director of ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, Deborah Caldwell Stone, Assistant Director, ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, and Lynne Bradley, director of ALA’s Office of Government Relations, Washington Office.

Cosponsored by the Office of Government Relations and the Office for Intellectual Freedom
