Event Description:

 

Nadine Strossen, the youngest-ever and first female serving president of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) spoke at the University of Notre Dame about the importance of free speech when considering movements for social change.

 

The discussion highlighted different legal precedents for why government and legislation should not be given the opportunity to choose what loosely defines “hate-speech” because ultimately, many of the liberally-minded positive social movements of the 20th century fell into a category similarly denoted by the government at the time. Strossen articulated the importance of protecting the most heinous of speech for the purpose of protecting the most valuable speech.
