Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

April 12: Fran Quigley on human rights and the war against terrorism

Fran Quigley is executive director of the ACLU-Indiana. More than that, he is emerging as a crucial intellectual and moral voice in discussions of law, the constitution, poverty, and society's obligations to the most vulnerable.

When: Wednesday April 12, talk 11-12, lunch noon -- 12:45

Where: North United Methodist Church, N. Meridian St. at 38th St.

Terrorist attacks in Western nations have forced governments to adopt measures, sometimes controversial, to combat terrorism. While security is a priority for all societies, debate has arisen about how far some of these measures should reach. Can human rights and civil liberties be fully protected in an age of terrorism?

This may be the most important theme in this year's "Great Decisions" series. Fran is the person to lead this discussion ... and not only because he is getting a lot of practice in these troubled times!
