Government Surveillance and Suing Robert Mueller

52 minutes

Vincent Warren and Ian Head from the Center for Constitutional Rights come to the front of the class to discuss government surveillance, corporate human rights abuses and how they used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to unearth something the FBI calls the "Race Paper”.

Our guests:

Vincent Warren:
Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights. He oversees CCR's groundbreaking litigation and advocacy work, which includes using international and domestic law to hold corporations and government officials accountable for human rights abuses; challenging racial, gender, and LGBT injustice; combating abusive immigration policies and Muslim profiling; and stopping the illegal expansion of U.S. presidential power and policies.

Ian Head:
Senior Legal Worker at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he works on policing, racial justice, immigrant rights, and prisoners’ rights issues. Ian has significant experience in Freedom of Information Act and open records requests and litigation, and coordinates the Open Records Project at CCR, leading trainings and developing resources for activists, lawyers and journalists.
