On April 19, the second annual Daniel K. Inouye Distinguished Lecture was held at the Library of Congress. This lecture series is made possible through a donation from The Daniel K. Inouye Institute. Each year the lecture focuses on a theme that reflects Senator Daniel K. Inouye's legacy of public service and civic engagement.
This year's lecture featured former U.S. Secretary of Transportation (and Vice Chair of the USJC Board of Councilors) Norman Y. Mineta, as well as former U.S. Sen. Alan K. Simpson. With moderator Ann Compton, a former White House correspondent, they discussed how the United States balances national security with the protection of Americans' civil liberties.
