Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Online trolls and fascist chat groups. Controversies over campus lectures. Cancel culture versus censorship. The daily hazards and debates surrounding free speech dominate headlines and fuel social media storms. In an era where one tweet can launch—or end—your career, learning to maneuver the fast-changing, treacherous landscape of public discourse has never been more urgent. As a leading voice in support of free expression, Suzanne Nossel will speak about how we can maintain a democratic debate that is open, free-wheeling but at the same time respectful of a rich diversity of backgrounds and opinions.
Suzanne Nossel is the CEO of PEN America, the foremost organization working to protect and advance human rights, free expression and literature. She has also served as the Chief Operating Officer of Human Rights Watch and as Executive Director of Amnesty International USA; and held senior State Department positions in the Clinton and Obama administrations. This virtual event is part of our Cultural Arts & Jewish Heritage Speaker Series.
Cost is $8 member / $10 non-member. Visit commonpointqueens.org/register to register. For more information, please email KStrauss@CommonpointQueens.org.
