 Karen Lugo

 Karen Lugo is the founder of The Libertas-West Project, the purpose of which is to advance the cause of liberty and oppose the worldwide progress of Islamism. In her capacity as head of this organization, Karen responded to a request from French jurists to submit a brief to the Conseil d'Etat on the legal grounds for banning the burqa. She will talk to us about what is constitutionally allowed here, what we can and cannot do in dealing with the advance of Islam. America should be a safe place for those Muslims who truly understand the difference between worship and a political totalitarian imposition of their laws on us. But many of us are not educated in the threat this movement brings, even though it is right in our own backyards. Karen is also Co-Director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence. In this role, she works with Chapman Law School Professor (and recent candidate for Attorney General) John Eastman to coordinate student legal research projects, and directs the Center's litigation in support of Constitutional issues. She has recently submitted amicus briefs to the US Supreme Court. She is also a visiting professor at Chapman Law School and co-teaches the advanced Constitutional Law Clinic.
