NYCLU to Host Real ID Act Forum
The New York Civil Liberties Union will host a forum Thursday on President Bush's controversial Real ID Act, which would establish a national ID card that, according to the NYCLU, "will become an internal passport for Americans and part of everyday life—a way to keep track of your movements, your activities and your lifestyle."
Among the speakers expected to discuss the plan at The New York Society for Ethical Culture are:
Donna Lieberman and Udi Ofer, of the New York Civil Liberties Union
Jim Harper, of the Cato Institute
Valerie Lucznikowska, September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows
Ed Ott, New York City Central Labor Council
Susan Lerner, Common Cause NY
State Sen. Eric Schneiderman, D-New York
The forum starts at 7 pm. The New York Society for Ethical Culture is located at 2 W. 64th St.
