The Klan marching in Skokie, Illinois, and burning an American Flag are both considered “protected speech.” In these days of social media, you can ‘speak’ to tens of thousands of people at the click of a mouse. What’s legal? What’s appropriate? Where’s the line? What role does context play in any of those questions?
Tonight's panelists include Kathy Riester from UA Dean of Students Office; Toni Masarro, the former dean of the UA Law School; Ron Barber, the former congressman and the founder of the Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding; Rabbi Sam Cohon of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona; and Kamel Didan of Islamic Center of Tucson. Kozachik will moderate.
The forum starts at 6 p.m. at the UA Modern Languages Building, room 350.
