Friday, April 9 – 3:30 – 5pm EST – When Free Speech Meets Hate Speech: The role of community media in First Amendment protection

Community media has always been a bastion of free speech, but what happens when that speech targets or threatens others? Join community media professionals from across the country for an informative and timely webinar which asks the question, is there speech that is not worthy of protection? Our society’s views on what is acceptable speech is quickly evolving, but does community media need to evolve with it? 

The webinar will feature Anthony Riddle, The Senior Vice President of Community Media at BRIC in Brooklyn, NY as the keynote speaker. Anthony has a long history of working with community media, in Atlanta, Minneapolis, and New York City, and in 2013 joined the staff at BRIC Arts Media in Brooklyn, New York.  Prior to his work at BRIC, he had worked with the Maysles Institute, the Pacifica Foundation, the Funding Exchange, and some group called the Alliance for Community Media, where he is a lifetime member and has served both on the Board of Directors and as Executive Director.

After the keynote, there will be a panel discussion featuring community media professionals, legal experts and equal rights advocates. A question and answer session will follow after the panel.
