CAP Conference on Homeland Security
Posted by Suzanne Nossel

The Center for American Progress, one of Democracy Arsenal's sponsoring organizations is hosting an important conference this Thursday on critical infrastructure, preparedness and homeland security.   Recognizing that Katrina exposed glaring flaws in our readiness to contend with the economic, public safety, and public health consequences of a terrorist strike or similar catastrophe at home, the conference will examine lessons from the aftermath of the hurricane for preparedness efforts.    The keynote is Bennie Thompson (D-MS) from the House Homeland Security Committee.  See extended post for the excellent line-up of experts who will speak and for details on registration.
