Santa Barbara, CA (April 8, 2014) – Antioch University Santa Barbara (AUSB) has announced its spring Trustee Forum: How Can We Balance Homeland Security & Personal Privacy? The latest in a panel series on contemporary issues that impact our community, this free, public event will be held on Tuesday, April 29 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at AUSB’s Community Hall, 602 Anacapa Street, downtown Santa Barbara. Journalist Jerry Roberts will facilitate a panel discussion with national security experts Andrew Liepman and Brian Michael Jenkins.

The interactive conversation will focus on the complex issues raised by President Obama’s proposed reforms of policies governing the National Security Agency’s collection of the personal data of Americans. Two national security experts will discuss how disclosure of the top-secret material affects the nation’s battle against terrorism, U.S. defense and diplomacy, government power, and Internet and telecommunications privacy. This discussion takes place amid the national and global controversies and conflicts set in motion by the unauthorized release of an unknown number of previously confidential and classified documents and programs.
