Freedom of Speech & the Press: Vital Freedoms

The First Amendment prohibits the government from making any law which abridges freedom of speech or the press. In the recent past, state-funded universities have disinvited commencement speakers, technology companies have shut down accounts, and entire books have been erased from Amazon. This panel examines freedom of speech and freedom of the press in an era when such freedoms are under threat—and the connection of these freedoms to other freedoms.
