Timothy Zick - The First Amendment in the Trump Era — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 13, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

From calling the press in general an “enemy of the people” to attacking individual reporters and defending the views of white nationalists, Trump has repeatedly flouted the First Amendment. In this analysis of the administration’s contentious relationship with free speech, Zick, John Marshall Professor of Government and Citizenship at William and Mary Law School, surveys the president’s various attacks and slurs, puts the incidents into historical context to show how today’s infractions of speech are different from those of the past, and reminds us that protest, dissent, and a free and independent press are crucial to keeping democracy thriving.
