About the Program

Twenty states have enacted laws restricting rights to peaceful protests, as environmentalists and others are increasingly criminalized. Our distinguished panelists all have direct experience with these laws and will explain and discuss this disturbing trend, which raises fundamental First Amendment issues regarding freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble.
