Citizens’ ability to dissent and disagree with those in power is critical to driving progress. Our founders recognized free speech and the ability to question and challenge authority as foundational to our democracy.
But multiple actions by lawmakers and institutions at every level of government threaten every American's ability to speak truth to power. When the state claims the power to determine what’s acceptable speech and suppress what’s not, it silences dissenting voices and the debate they generate.
It threatens the security of every other right we enjoy in America, from the freedom of peaceful protest to the freedom of worship. Perhaps worse, it threatens crucial parts of our everyday lives, from education to healthcare.
