Washington Post Live | Free to State: The New Free Speech
October 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Attitudes toward free expression are evolving as more of our discourse takes place online and concerns about the growing preponderance of “lawful but awful” content and discourse mount.
Today’s young adults struggle to reconcile the value of a radically permissive free speech culture on the one hand, and support for inclusivity on the other. At the same time, many young activists have found agency and voice in recent protests for racial equality, a right enshrined by the First Amendment and its interpretation by American jurisprudence.
Join Washington Post Live on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a discussion about the future of free expression in the U.S. featuring Robert J. Zimmer, president of the University of Chicago.
