NYC event: Understanding the NSA leaks

    Edward-Snowden-660x367

    So, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about this guy Edward lately.

    Edward Snowden? Yeah, sounds familiar. What was he trying to tell us? Many of the details of the NSA leaks keep getting lost because the media focuses on Snowden, not the revelations about the NSA. And what about all these terms that get thrown around? Metadata? PRISM? FISA? There’s a lot of technical vocabulary and government jargon that gets used in association with the surveillance state, but what do these terms mean? How does surveillance really work? What do the documents Snowden leaked really mean for you and me?

    To find out, join us for a panel discussion in New York City to unpack the ongoing NSA revelations facilitated by Molly Knefel of Radio Dispatch and Nathan Sheard of the Mutant Legal Collective.
