What Will It Take to Keep Us (and Our Freedoms) Safe?

Twenty years after 9/11 and in the wake of the U.S. exit from Afghanistan, learn what’s lost, what’s won, and what threatens us now. As America comes to terms with new domestic political realities and a changed geo-political landscape, how do we strengthen and protect our civil liberties while fighting terrorism and maintaining a peaceful international order? What are the most pressing threats we face, both domestically and internationally, and how can the U.S. government deal with them without eroding our freedoms even more than the War on Terror already has?

This event is produced in partnership with the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy at Federal Hall and New York University's John Brademas Center.
