PLF Attorney Ethan Blevins on Hate Speech Panel
Attorney Ethan Blevins will participate on a panel about hate-speech regulations and the First Amendment at the annual Crosscut Festival at Seattle University on Saturday, February 3, at 11:30 AM.
Last August, the nation was stunned by the sight of white nationalists and Nazi sympathizers marching in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia. What began as a protest against the removal of a Confederate statue ended in bloodshed, as a white nationalist drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters.
Charlottesville shone a spotlight on a rising tide of hate and hate speech on college campuses, including here in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle reporter Sara Bernard leads a conversation about the line between free speech and hate speech on campus, and what different schools are doing to police it.
