Engage in civil discourse through the lens of the First Amendment.

Join in an open discussion of the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech. Please watch the Tedx Talk "The Freedom of Speech: a Call for Civil Dialogue" with Katia Campbell on YouTube: . Together we'll explore and discuss what is protected under the First Amendment, how to engage in civil dialogue and what Freedom of Speech means to us.
