CAIR-Chicago Co-Sponsoring Civil Rights Panel Discussion
November 30, 2006

In the United States today, we are witnessing the gradual deterioration of the legal rights, civil liberties and humane policies for which our government once stood. In response to terrorist threats, security on all levels is expanding along with concerns over the reach of new security techniques and mechanisms.

Please join our panel of legal experts as they examine new security measures – and the arguments for public concern over issues of privacy, exploitation and official misconduct.
