Are We Killing Free Speech? Livestream Link, Tuesday, September 19, 2017, 7 pm Eastern

Join Dave Rubin, Steve Simpson, and Bret Weinstein on September 19th for a discussion on the current state of freedom of speech in America!

Conflicts over free speech are reaching a boiling point, leading to violent clashes and even the loss of life. The headlines out of Charlottesville, Boston, Berkeley, Evergreen State College, Claremont and Middlebury show a nation divided over one of our most cherished and important rights. Navigating free speech rights is no simple task. But sitting back and doing nothing could have catastrophic implications for this generation and the next.

What can we do to address the issue and to protect the all-important right to free speech?

In, “Are We Killing Free Speech,” panelists address this question and others related to the state of free speech in America. 

WHEN: Tuesday, September 19, at 7 PM ET.
