A live event in New York City, sponsored by Concerned Veterans for America: 

Here are the event details:

Recent revelations about the size and scope of National Security Agency surveillance programs have reignited a long-standing debate regarding the proper balance between individual liberty and national security demands.

Nearly twelve years after the attacks of 9/11, with conventional U.S. wars winding down overseas but threats to security ever-present and emerging, what is the proper balance in America?

Has America sacrificed too much liberty and privacy for the sake of security?

Or are calls for curbed surveillance naïve in a dangerous world? Specifically, where has current surveillance policy gone too far? And where might we need to expand further?
