ACLU Hosting Conference On Government Surveillance

Oct 30, 2013

The Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is going to be hosting a daylong conference on government surveillance.

The Wednesday meeting is going to be held at the Pavilion Auditorium in Montpelier.

Last month the Vermont ACLU released a report about how many modern day conveniences, such as cell phones, make it possible for people to be tracked.

Many of the tools and systems used to watch people have been purchased with grants from the federal Department of Homeland Security.

During Wednesday's meeting, experts will look at some of those issues.
