Mass surveillance and privacy

Ben Wizner, the lead attorney for NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden, will speak on campus Monday, November 2.

Wizner’s talk, “Collecting it All: Mass Surveillance and the Future of Privacy,” will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel. This lecture is free and open to the public. 

The director of the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project will discuss how surveillance technologies have outpaced democratic controls, and how Edward Snowden’s revelations have begun to revitalize democratic oversight of the intelligence community.

He has litigated numerous cases involving post-9/11 civil liberties abuses, including challenges to airport security policies, government watchlists, extraordinary rendition, and torture. He has appeared regularly in the media, testified before Congress, and traveled several times to Guantanamo Bay to monitor military commission proceedings.
