THE LAND OF THE FREE?

THE LAND OF THE FREE?

Rights and liberties in America today. The University of Essex is hosting a unique open lecture by the leading American defender of civil liberties.

Details

Civil liberties in the USA face unprecedented opposition in an age when its leaders assault rights in name of protecting national security. Can ordinary American citizens fight back and protect their constitution? Can sanctuary cities set an example for all? And is it truly the land of the free? Anthony D Romero, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union, which has galvanized new levels of grassroot activism through its People Power initiative, and successfully fought President Trump’s travel ban in the courts, addresses some of the most pressing issues facing his homeland, issues that impact people around the world.
