The Palestine Exception to Free Speech

Eck Hall of Law, Notre Dame, IN

The Palestine Exception to Free Speech is a term that acknowledges the widespread and growing suppression of Palestinian human rights advocacy in the United States. Jinan Chehade and Rifqa Falaneh will visit NDLS to discuss their experiences as pro-Palestinian advocates. Jinan Chehade is a Georgetown Law School graduate whose offer from Foley & Lardner was rescinded after she made social media posts expressing her support for Palestine. Rifqa Falaneh is the Michael Ratner Justice Fellow at Palestine Legal where she challenges the censorship, surveillance, and suppression of advocates for Palestinian liberation.
