On Friday, February 18, 2011, Michael Posner, Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, will hold a conversation with Leslie Harris, President and CEO of the Center for Democracy and Technology, on the State Department's internet freedom strategy. The discussion will be moderated by P.J. Crowley, Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, and streamed live on DipNote, the Department of State's official blog, at 10:00 a.m. (EST). Members of the general public are invited to participate by submitting questions, some of which will be selected for response during the live broadcast.

This is the eleventh in the Conversations With America video series coordinated by the Bureau of Public Affairs, in which the State Department's senior leadership hosts conversations live, online, with leaders of prominent non-governmental organizations. Discussion topics include foreign policy and global issues and provide a candid view of how leaders from civil society engage the Department on pressing foreign policy issues.
