A forum is scheduled at California State University, Bakersfield concerning the impact on Americans’ constitutional rights after Sept. 11, 2001.

The CSUB political science department hosts the forum on Tuesday, May 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the student union multipurpose room. Panelists are:

  • David Torres, vice president of the Kern County Bar Association, board of directors for the criminal section of the Kern County Bar Association and major in the Army Judge Advocate General Corps.
  • Mike Yraceburn, supervisor for the Kern County district attorney’s office and a colonel for the Navy Reserves
  • Mark Martinez, CSUB associate professor of political science; active member of the Military Academy College Review Board for U.S. Rep. Jim Costa’s office and current research associate for the Universidad Autonoma de Queretaro, Mexico.

"This is going to be an exciting forum," Martinez said. "The topic is important for people in the community to hear from the panelists; especially when the topic deals with issues concerning our constitutional rights post 9-11."

The forum is free and open to the public.

For more information, please call the political science department at (661) 654-2141.
