2016 Civil Liberties Symposium

Civil Liberties Symposium XI: 
Mass Incarceration in the Land of the Free

October 15-16, 2016 at Boise State University

The 11th Annual Minidoka Civil Liberties Symposium will be held this October at Boise State University. The change to the fall program is an effort to hold the symposium when schools are in session, in order to offer college credits while more students and teachers are available to attend. The 2016 theme, Mass Incarceration in the Land of the Free, touches all levels of society and is a current leading topic of concern in any serious discussion of domestic issues. How the US criminal justice system functions, where it succeeds, and where it fails to enforce and to protect civil liberties will be explored with an exciting lineup of presenters. We will provide additional information, including the program and link for registration, on our website as they become available. We hope you will join us!
