- Jennifer Clark, a counsel in the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program discusses the status of efforts to overturn voter suppression laws across the country just weeks before the election — and reports that some right wing groups will be organizing intimidation tactics at the polls, targeting minority groups and young people.
- William Binney, a former high-level National Security Agency intelligence official who, after his 2001 retirement after 30 years, blew the whistle on NSA surveillance programs. His criticism of the NSA during the George W. Bush administration made him the subject of FBI investigations including a raid on his home in 2007. Binney talks about the recent arrest of NSA contractor Harold T. Martin III, in what appears connected to allegations that Martin stole government secrets.
- Journalist Shane Burley discusses his recent article, “How the Alt Right is trying to create a ‘safe space’ for racism on college campuses,” co-written with Alexander Reid Ross, which was recently published on the Waging Nonviolence website — and related issues in the 2016 election campaign.
- Chris Schweitzer, an organizer with the New Haven, CT Healthy City/Healthy Climate Challenge — and program director with the New Haven/Leon Sister City Project, discusses the, “Let’s Talk About Climate Change Alien Installation,” in New Haven, — and why there’s a need to encourage the public to engage in conversations about climate change. He’ll also preview the facilitated conversation event on Faith, Philosophy and Climate Change scheduled to take place at the New Haven venue, BAR, on Tuesday, October 25.
