Teens are invited to join in this documentary and discussion considering students' right to free speech in school. This event is for teens in grades 6-12.

We take for granted that the First Amendment to the Constitution states:

Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press...

But how does freedom of expression apply to students? 

We'll watch the short documentary First Amendment: Student Freedom of Speech produced by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and talk about the film and our own ideas. 

Contact Megan at mzimmerman@alexlibraryva.org for more information.
