Special Speaker: ACLU's Becky Strauss on Drones (plus other morning events)

10AM Main Event Details:
Becky Straus speaks to us today about drones. Many Americans have heard of these unmanned aerial vehicles because of their use for targeted assassinations of terrorist suspects in places like Afghanistan and Yemen. But drones are also used for surveillance and they are coming to our domestic airspace. Protections must be put in place to guard our privacy. In this conversation, we explore the several interests and stakeholders associated with use of surveillance drones in Oregon.
