Hear from the CWA panelist who helped bar Donald Trump from blocking journalists on Twitter

For over 75 years, the Conference on World Affairs – commonly known as CWA – has brought leaders and experts across different fields together to discuss central issues of our time. It’s a collaboration involving CU Boulder and Boulder community members.

This year’s CWA started earlier this week, on Tuesday, and runs through today. There were over 70 panels, focused around the future – things like AI and quantum computing – global equity, and leadership. It’s free to attend, via livestream or in-person, at CU Boulder. You just have to register online.

Rebecca Pilar Buckwalter-Poza participated in five panels this year. Four have already happened, and one is today at 9:00 a.m.

Buckwalter-Poza is a Senior fellow and Aron Senior Justice Counsel at the Alliance for Justice. She’s an activist and advocate specializing in law, politics, and policy. She’s perhaps best known for her role as the first named plaintiff in Columbia University’s First Amendment lawsuit that successfully barred then President Donald Trump from blocking journalists and other constituents on Twitter.

She joined KGNU’s Jackie Sedley during the Morning Magazine to talk about the work she does and the panels she’s participating in.
