ACS Chicago: The First Amendment & The Trump Era
2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Texas v. Johnson (1989), which established burning the American flag in protest as constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment. Please join The John Marshall Law School Student Chapter and Chicago Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society for an interactive panel to discuss the dangers of xenophobia, forced patriotism, and the silencing of political dissenters in 2019.
