The Realities of Free Speech

Posted by Margaret von Steinen for We Talk

An interactive virtual presentation about free speech rights and responsibilities on campus presented by Jessica Swartz, WMU deputy general counsel, that will cover the different types of speech, how the government (i.e., the University) is allowed to regulate that speech, and how to exercise that speech on campus. Swartz discuss the types of speech that are not protected and the reasons why. Participants will come out of the presentation understanding why we must protect the free speech rights of everyone—even if every fiber in our being disagrees with what they are saying. Contact:
