Civility and Free Expression in a Constitutional Democracy

Civility and Free Expression in a Constitutional Democracy—A National Dialogue

Civility and Free Expression in a Constitutional Democracy—A National Dialogue will explore the balance between norms of civility and the laws of free expression within our society and system of government. The ABA has partnered with organizations in nine states to conduct thirteen public programs in cities across the country between September 2012 and June 2013. Each of the public programs will explore the balance between civility and constitutional democracy, and contribute to a national dialogue around the topic.

You are invited to be part of the national dialogue too. Attend a program. Use the resources here to organize or host a program. Send a tweet. Join us.
