I was making my way through downtown this morning when I spotted something important that I’d like to blog.
As I walked past the Edward J. Schwartz United States Courthouse, I noticed a new crop of student posters has appeared in the building’s windows. These posters were submitted by local kids for the San Diego County Bar Association’s 2019 Law Week Poster and Video Contest.
The theme this year is Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society.
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution is vitally important to me. I’m a writer.
If you value individual liberty and a free and open society, its protections are fundamental.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
