2020 City Club Annual Meeting

Featured Audio

In the past year, the topic of free speech and its practice has come under debate on platforms like Facebook – whose backseat approach to quelling false political advertisements or dismantling hate groups has been deeply scrutinized – and on college campuses, where students have frequently expressed outrage at the presence of campus lecturers with whom they do not agree. As the notion of free speech is frequently pitted against other progressive axioms—namely diversity and equality– how do we reconcile these two sets of core American values?

In her book Dare To Speak: Defending Free Speech for All, Suzanne Nossel, President and CEO of PEN America, delivers a timely guide to navigating the ever-changing landscape of public discourse, while at the same time lifting and amplifying the voices that have been historically silenced in democratic debate.

Guests:
