National Conference on the First Amendment: Day 1
Sunday, October 21, 2018
Duquesne University and The Pittsburgh Foundation, in cooperation with the National Constitution Center, will host the National Conference on the First Amendment: Bedrock of American Freedoms on Sunday, Oct. 21, and Monday, Oct. 22, at Duquesne University's Power Center.
The National Conference on the First Amendment will highlight the critical importance of the First Amendment as a bedrock of all American freedoms and its central role in maintaining the viability of our democratic institutions. At a time when mistrust of government and uncertainty about foundational values have become the norm in our society, all Americans—regardless of ideology or politics—can find common ground in a national celebration of the First Amendment.
