Safe and sane?
Teens talk security, liberty with leaders

California Attorney General Bill Lockyer and other state leaders will meet with high school students at the State Capitol for a town hall meeting on security and civil liberties on Thursday, Feb. 6.

The event - from 1 to 2 p.m. in the State Capitol room 4202 - is sponsored by the LegiSchool Project at California State University, Sacramento.

It will allow students to share their opinions on various state and federal safety measures put in place since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. The discussion will focus on how strict airport security, armed security in public, new laws and other efforts have affected civil liberties.

In addition to Lockyer, the panel will include state Sen. Debra Bowen (D-Redondo Beach) and Assemblymembers Ray Haynes (R-Riverside) and Sharon Runner (R-Lancaster).

Students from El Camino High and Hiram Johnson High in Sacramento, North Hollywood High, Salisbury High in Red Bluff, and Castro Valley High will attend the meeting. Thousands of other students in California will view the meeting live on the California Channel or on videotape.

Paula Gardner, a professor from the CSUS College of Education, will moderate the meeting.

The LegiSchool Project is an award-winning civic education effort of CSUS and the State Legislature, administered by the Center for California Studies.

More information is available by contacting LegiSchool Project Director Kolleen Ostgaard at (916) 278-6906 or by visiting Media assistance is available from CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
