Description

This winter, the Supreme Court will hear three important cases involving one of our most precious rights: the freedom of speech. In Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Council 31, public employees who have opted out of union membership are fighting for their voices to be heard. Minnesota Voters Alliance v. Mansky deals with whether states can ban voters from wearing t-shirts with political messages at polling places. In National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra, pregnancy crisis centers are pushing back on California’s requirement that they advertise the state’s free abortion program. In all these cases, the government has tried to dictate what speech is permissible. How might the Supreme Court justices react to these cases? Will free speech win the day? Join us for a discussion with distinguished lawyers who are involved in these three cases.
