The event is part of a new Twitter series called #FAWPublicForum. The digital discussion series will be a live Q&A with a First Amendment expert on topics ranging from assembly rights to FOIA requests to misinformation campaigns. Each month, the discussion will address First Amendment topics in a contemporary context.
