Surveillance, Privacy & Free Speech - Sunshine Week

Library Fishbowl
Electronic Frontier Foundation, Access Humboldt, and the Humboldt State University Library are collaborating with local media outlets this month to explore the frontiers of surveillance, privacy and free speech during a series of Sunshine Week events in Arcata and Eureka from March 16-21.

Shahid Buttar from the Electronic Frontier Foundation will be the keynote speaker for a forum on “Surveillance, Privacy and Free Speech” at the HSU Library on Monday, March 20, from 4:30-7:00 p.m. Shahid Buttar is the director of grassroots advocacy at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the event will feature practical workshops on topics including Web Browser Privacy Settings, Smartphone Encryption, Virtual Private Networking, Encryption and Security, Digital Rights Management and more.

Buttar graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003 and became immersed in the movement to stop the war in Iraq. He is a constitutional lawyer “focused on the intersection of community organizing and policy reform as a lever to shift legal norms, with roots in communities across the country resisting mass surveillance.”

From 2009 to 2015, he led the Bill of Rights Defense Committee as executive director, and he has also championed causes including campaign finance reform, marriage equality for same-sex couples, and combatting racial and religious profiling of Muslims.

Outside of work, Buttar also “DJs and produces electronic music, writes poetry and prose, kicks rhymes, organizes guerilla poetry insurgencies, plays capoeira, speaks truth to power on Truthout, occasionally elucidates legal scholarship, and documents counter-cultural activism for the Burning Man Journal.”

Criminal Justice Dialogue

Native American Forum
On March 20th, a community dialogue around the criminal justice system will spark change on a local level. Service providers, students, and the currently and formerly incarcerated have come together to create this transformative event. March 20th-24th at Humboldt State University, nationally recognized criminal justice organizations, (Prisoners with Children, Project What, Prison University Project, Homeboy Industries, and more), will present their work to Humboldt County stakeholders. The event will be broken up into themes surrounding: the effects of incarceration on families, barriers to employment and housing, the role of gender and race in the criminal justice system, the importance of education, and reentry success stories. It will end with a round table discussion on improving reentry services in Humboldt County.

The community Criminal Justice Dialogue, is a yearly event that is aimed at addressing the barriers to reintegration as well as showcasing the need for further support services for those impacted by incarceration. These events are also a platform for not only the development of services, but also an opportunity to discuss the importance of addressing stigma, a harmful invisible barrier that perpetuates punishments past the point of incarceration.

The distinguished National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine lends its expressive power to a program that includes Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with celebrated Ukrainian soloist Alexei Grynyuk, and Shostakovich’s heroic Symphony No. 5. “Its strings can conjure up a vibrant songfulness; the woodwinds have a fruity, penetrating ripeness; the brass could endanger the walls of Jericho; the percussion might wake the dead” (Sydney Morning Herald).
