Civility and Free Expression in a Constitutional Democracy

A moderated forum on the possible tensions between civility and free expression, with a day-long workshop to plan nationwide public programs; resource, activity, and technical assistance guides; and a web-based forum for continuing public discussion of civility and free speech.

Program Overview The American Bar Association (ABA) Division for Public Education proposes to conduct Civility and Free Expression in a Constitutional Democracy, a Bridging Cultures forum and workshop. The moderated public forum and facilitated workshop will explore the importance of balancing civility and freedom of expression, recognizing that these values sometimes conflict, and the role that they play in a constitutional democracy.
