Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee invite you to a thought provoking discussion on the relationship between Civil Liberties and National Security. Since the horrific terrorist attacks on the East Coast on Sept. 11th, people's desire for security has also opened the possibility of a permanent erosion of everyone's Civil Rights with passage of the "USA Patriot Act", indefinite incarceration of over 900 Dept. of Justice detainees, as well as talk of "secret military tribunals."
Join us for this important forum in the heart of L.A.'s Japanese American Community.
Saturday, Jan. 26, 2002 from 2-4 p.m.
Location: Japanese American Cultural Community Center JACCC
