Dr. Todd Gitlin presents Freedom of Speech & Freedom of Assembly
Is YOUR Freedom of Assembly under Threat?
The fundamental right of freedom of assembly in our democratic system is being threatened. Almost all state constitutions contain a reference to the goal of the common good as a justification for free assembly. (In the state of Washington, for example: "Section 4 Right of Petition and Assemblage. The right of petition and of the people peaceably to assemble for the common good shall never be abridged.")
Social Media has now become a forum for public assembly. Is public assembly under attack?
