The University of Essex is hosting a unique open lecture by the leading American defender of civil liberties, Anthony Romero.
Civil liberties in the USA face unprecedented opposition in an age when its leaders assault rights in name of protecting national security. Can ordinary American citizens fight back and protect their constitution? Can sanctuary cities set an example for all? And is it truly the land of the free?
Anthony D Romero, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union, which has galvanized new levels of grassroots activism through its People Power initiative, and successfully fought President Trump’s travel ban in the courts, addresses some of the most pressing issues facing his homeland, issues that impact people around the world.
