Tell Congress to strip J. Edgar Hoover’s name from FBI headquarters!

28 Nov Featured Image -- 11696

Originally posted on :


J. Edgar Hoover’s name–synonymous with illegal government intrusion, abuse of power, and warrantless surveillance and harassment of activists and politicians–is a stain on the FBI, and must be stripped from the agency’s headquarters.

Hoover habitually used the FBI’s extensive surveillance power to collect damaging information on leaders and activists, and kept the most scurrilous data under his personal control. He used his possession of these files to maintain his position as FBI director and to intimidate, accuse, and discredit enemies. In an unsigned 1964 letter to Martin Luther King, later verified by the Church Committee, Hoover implies having intimate knowledge of King’s sex life, and suggests that the doctor should kill himself: “There is only one thing left for you to do. You know what it is.”

In 1951, at the height of the Cold War, Hoover ordered his agents to identify every suspected gay working…

Policing in America
9 am – 5 pm

Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue NW

The highly publicized officer-involved killings of Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, and others have prompted renewed discussions about American law enforcement. Police departments face increasing criticism from protesters, the media, and the federal government. President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing published its recommendations earlier this year, but what do they mean for officers and the communities they patrol? Is sweeping reform necessary? With approximately 18,000 police agencies operating in the United States, is such reform even possible?

American policing is changing. Emerging technologies provide new methods both for police accountability and surveillance capabilities. Law enforcement scholars and practitioners continue to develop innovative strategies to address crime and disorder. In many cities, police agencies are wrestling with how to increase public safety while respecting the dignity of individuals, particularly in minority communities.

At this day-long conference on Policing in America, an array of law enforcement experts will explore minority perspectives on community policing; police accountability; the costs and benefits of emerging police technologies; and more!

1050 17th Street NW 

The Star Wars franchise has inspired generations of science-fiction fans, numerous spin-offs, both good and terrible fan fiction, and even legislation in Congress.

With the next installment of the space opera set to be released in December, there are some important questions we must examine: Is the Empire actually a force for good? Are the Jedi a dangerous religious cult? Was the Republic doomed to failure? Is Han Solo an anarcho-capitalist? What does the series tell us about trade disputes? How would U.S. copyright law apply to lightsabers? How does Star Trek’s vision of futuristic utopian socialism compare with Star Wars’ setting “a long time in a galaxy far, far away”?

Our panel of experts will answer these questions and more with a deep discussion of the political philosophy of Star Wars and other contemporary science fiction. Reception to follow.
