When Free Speech Collides with Impermissible Speech: A Civil Discourse
Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017
UWM Student Union Ballroom
10:30 am − noon
The Freedom of Expression and Civil Discourse Series is designed to provide students, faculty and staff with information on their right to free speech on campus as well as the rights of invited speakers. It will also serve as a platform to assist in finding productive, nonviolent ways to respond to speech and expressions with which they disagree without infringing on the free speech rights of others.
