Do measures that trade off liberty for security actually work? Can we move beyond fear to find sensible solutions in an uncertain time? This year's American Civil Liberties Union of Washington Annual Membership Conference, on Saturday, February 11 at 12:30 p.m. at the University of Washington's Kane Hall in Seattle, will bring together experts in security, law, privacy, and law enforcement to explore what it means to be both safe and free.

The event, which welcomes members and non-members alike, features a keynote address at 12:30 p.m. by internationally renowned security expert and author Bruce Schneier and a plenary presentation on drug law reform at 3:45 p.m. by former Seattle Chief of Police Norm Stamper. Concurrent workshops from 2:15-3:30 p.m. will explore "Privacy in the Age of Terror" and "Detentions, Torture, and the Law." A reception will follow the program at 5:00 p.m.

The Annual Meeting is free to the public; $10 donations will be welcomed. For more information, call the ACLU at (206) 624-2184 or visit www.aclu-wa.org.

"Recent disclosures of the federally authorized NSA spying program have rocked our nation and made candid discussion on what it means to really be safe and free even more urgent," said ACLU-WA Executive Director Kathleen Taylor. "The 2006 Annual Membership Conference will provide a valuable opportunity to move beyond fear and hype and examine how to take action within the bounds of the Constitution."
