Talking about the "T" Word

  • North Regional Library 1315 Lowry Avenue North Minneapolis, MN, 55411 United States (map)

What is the meaning of “terrorism”? Who decides which acts are labeled terrorism? Is the term even valid? Who is targeted by these definitions and why? What are the effects on targeted communities and what are the legal implications?

Moderated by NLG member Haroun McClellan, the panel includes:
• Bruce Nestor, attorney who defended Somali youth accused of terrorism
• Jaylani Hussein, CAIR Executive Director
• Jess Sundin, activist subjected to home raid and threats of a grand jury for her support of Palestinian autonomy
• Joe Vaccaro, NLG member

Join us for a fascinating, interactive discussion.
