Freedom of expression is one of the most fundamental of all freedoms and is essential to the very existence of democracy. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution broadly protects your right to share ideas, express yourself, advocate for change, and gather together in protest. It is vital for all people to understand and protect these foundational civil liberties. Dwight Yoder, Justin Bollinger and Sheila O’Rourke will present a basic overview of the First Amendment right to free speech and peaceable assembly using real-world case studies.
