9:30 – 10:30 FAIR PLAY on Zoom
Leaks and Leakers
Speakers: Heidi Kitrosser, Visiting Professor, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law
Robin Kaplan, Professor, University of Minnesota Law School
All administrations leak profusely from the top. This means that they leak politically convenient information. When that is coupled with a historically unparalleled use of the Espionage Act to go after lower-level employees for leaking classified information, it becomes a powerful weapon for the government. It allows them to pick and choose what they want the people to know.
11:00 – 12:00 EDUCATION on Zoom

This presentation will focus on the purpose of the School Garden movement: how it has developed in Minnesota; how it complements or extends the school curriculum in a variety of subjects; how students respond to these hands-on offerings; and how it incorporates perspectives and agricultural practices from various cultures.
