Register to receive the Zoom access link and password: bit.ly/tanvirSC
As the question of how to rein in law enforcement abuses takes center stage nationally, join the Center for Constitutional Rights, CLEAR, and CUNY School of Law for a virtual panel discussion in advance of Supreme Court arguments in Tanzin v. Tanvir, a case brought on behalf of American Muslims who were placed or kept on the No-Fly List by the FBI for refusing to spy on their Muslim communities.
What happened to the Tanvir plaintiffs is part of a long history of federal agents abusing tools at their disposal to target Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities. A history that is ever-present. We are seeing in real time the dizzying expanse of tools used by federal agents to target, suppress, and surveil individuals and movements across the country. Speakers will discuss how we can protect our communities and hold federal agents accountable using litigation, advocacy, and public education resources.
Our panel features:
Naveed Shinwari, Tanvir plaintiff
Diala Shamas, Center for Constitutional Rights
Ramzi Kassem, CUNY School of Law
Thenjiwe McHarris, Blackbird & M4BL
Moderated by journalist Rozina Ali
