How the War on Terror impacts whistleblowers and journalists  Judge

Will Potter has spent his career telling the stories of people fighting for social change and attempts to silence their dissent post 9/11. His reporting and commentary have been featured by The Washington Post, CNN, National Geographic, WIRED and NPR. He has lectured at nearly 300 universities and forums, including Harvard Law School and Yale University and was selected as a TED Senior Fellow. Potter has been invited to testify before the U.S. Congress about his reporting, as the only witness opposing the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, and he has spoken about his investigations before the Australian Parliament. His book, “Green Is The New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege,” was described in Counter-Terrorism Unit surveillance documents as "compelling and well-written."
