Janet Napolitano - How Safe Are We?: Homeland Security Since 9/11

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Now president of the University of California, Napolitano served as Secretary of Homeland Security from 2009 to 2013. Created in the wake of 9/11 and charged with making America safer, the department oversees some 230,000 employees in twenty-two federal agencies, including those related to intelligence and law enforcement, natural disasters, commercial aviation, border security and ICE, cybersecurity, and terrorism. Answering critics of such a large, wide-ranging, and untraditional agency, Napolitano draws on her experiences—which range from countering security threats during Obama’s inauguration to coordinating responses to Hurricane Sandy and the “Underwear Bomber”—and on the fact that the nation has not had another 9/11, to show that Homeland Security plays an effective and essential role in keeping the nation safe.
