Navigating the Security Culture: Activism in a Post 9/11 World

A discussion w/ Laura Regan & Tre Arrow (FREE!)
Saturday, August 7th @ 9:15 - 10:45 AM
1312 SE 35th Ave. Portland, Oregon
This is one of the sessions at the @ Christian Conference

The aim of this session is two-fold. First, it is a way to inform people about laws that criminalize dissent and that make it exceedingly difficult to work for social change. Second, it provides an opportunity for one man to share his experience with this system as a "well-known peaceful activist" who ended up being convicted as an "alleged arsonist." With these goals in mind, our hope is that people who have the urge to act and speak for the cause of justice will have their eyes opened to the legal consequences they face. The rules have changed and all of us need to know this as we seek to resist our oppressive and death-dealing culture.
