Can Speech Truly be Free? Who can say What When?

(RSVP is required for this event, see link below)

From white nationalist demonstrations to viral memes, from political misinformation to online trolls, hate speech is everywhere. In the United States, the First Amendment right of free speech protects most hate speech. Join this workshop to discuss the tension between free speech and hate speech on college campuses and online. Can we respond in ways that address the harms of hate speech while protecting free speech rights?
