WASHINGTON – Tomorrow, the American Civil Liberties Union will participate in a panel discussion on advancing privacy rights, titled “Domestic Surveillance: Next Steps,” in room 385 of the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington D.C. The one-hour event is part of a National Whistleblower Assembly, sponsored by the Government Accountability Project (GAP), being held March 8-11.

The panel discussion will feature three privacy advocates sharing their recommendations for engaging with the Obama administration to reform U.S. surveillance policy. One of the panelists is Michael MacLeod-Ball, Chief Legislative and Policy Counsel for the ACLU Washington Legislative Office, who will address ongoing surveillance issues, such as the Patriot Act and the National Security Letters Reform Act. He will also discuss recent revelations about surveillance on peaceful activists in Maryland and Texas as evidence of the problems with the new Attorney General guidelines issued last year.
