About the Event
Nadine Strossen is one of America's most articulate and forceful defenders of free speech. Her voice has become increasingly important as the topic finds itself at the center of social, legal, and cultural conversations. This event is cosponsored by the Lorentzsen Center and Concordia's Pre-Law Group. It will be a moderated conversation covering everything from recent Supreme Court cases and social controversies to themes from Strossen's landmark 2018 book, HATE: Why We Should Resist It With Free Speech, Not Censorship. The conversation promises to be energetic, insightful, and thought-provoking.

She served as President of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1991-2008, and is currently Senior Fellow at FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression.
