Surveillance State: Can Democracy Survive? says
“Surveillance State: Can Democracy Survive?” presented by ACLU of Tennessee and the Nashville Public Library, is a free, public discussion with Ben Wizner, director of the national ACLU Speech, Privacy and Technology Project and lawyer to National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden. Wizner will discuss the NSA’s mass surveillance program and the impact of state-sanctioned spying on the future of privacy, free speech and democracy in a post-Snowden America.

A screening of Citizenfour, winner of the 2015 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, will precede the discussion. The film, which features Wizner, is a thrilling account of journalists Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras's encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong in the days before and after he exposed the U.S. government's illegal mass surveillance program to the world, sparking a global debate on our right to privacy.

The event will be held at the Nashville Public Library Conference Center on Saturday, October 17, 2015.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public. For more information, call (615) 320-7142 or email
