ADL & UCI Law: Is Free Speech Destroying Itself Online?

Tuesday, June 2 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

America’s deep commitment to free speech is being challenged with the unparalleled power of online speech used to spread hate, bigotry, and extremism. What happens when unfettered free speech on the internet and social media leads to real world harms? Just like we are not permitted to yell fire in a crowded movie theater, are there limits to what can be said online? Where are those limits and who gets to draw them?

This webinar brings together UC Irvine Law School Professor David Kaye, a leading legal expert on free speech and the internet, and Lenora Clair, an online hate activist who has been a target of online hate and harassment. This webinar will include brief presentations, discussion, and an opportunity for you to ask the experts your questions.

This event is co-sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League of Orange County and Long Beach and UCI Law.
