Forums explore post-Sept. 11 issues

Two upcoming forums at California State University, Sacramento will examine issues arising from the Sept. 11 attacks and the U.S. response. The first will be on civil liberties and the second will be on the effect on interfaith dialogue.

The forum on "Terrorism and Civil Liberties" will be noon to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 19 in the University Union Hinde Auditorium. It will feature William Vizzard, chair of the CSUS criminal justice program and retired special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; and Stephen Robbins, adjunct professor of government at CSUS and a Sacramento attorney. The forum will be moderated by CSUS government professor William Dorman.

"The Impact of September 11 on Interfaith Dialogue" will be 2 to 5 p.m., Sunday, March 17 in the Steven Lee Yamshon Alumni Center. It will feature CSUS professors of humanities and religious studies Rosalie Cuneo Amer, Maria Jaoudi and Robert Platzner. It will be facilitated by CSUS professor of humanities and religious studies Brad Nystrom.

Both upcoming forums are part of an ongoing series of events on campus in response to Sept. 11. They are free and open to the public. Videotapes of previous forums are available in the library's media center.
