Free Speech: Can I Tell You How Much I Hate You?

Event Type: Adult
Age Group(s): Adults
Date: 3/5/2020
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 2:30 PM
Description:
 Freedom of speech is fundamental in a democratic society. It means that a person or a community can express their opinion or ideas without fear of retaliation or censorship. But what happens when the opinions expressed are unpopular, violent or dangerous? Whether expressed in person, or through social media, words can have a powerful effect on our sense of safety, inclusion or exclusion, and equality or inequality. What is “hate speech?” Who decides what speech is protected, and what is not? Who regulates social media content? What is the impact on individuals and communities who are silenced? Explore the complex history of first amendment freedoms of speech, expression and assembly in America. This is a FRANK Talk provided by Arizona Humanities.
