Description:

CFAS provides programs designed to educate students about their First Amendment heritage, its impact on new technologies, and to encourage faculty members to do original research on freedom of expression. Perhaps at no time in our history have First Amendment issues so dominated national attention: Campuses struggle with rules to guide "politically correct" speech The Supreme Court opens political campaigns to spending by corporations and unions In the name of national security, the Administration issues regulations based on Congressional legislation that may infringe on First Amendment freedoms Freedom assembly allows private groups to exclude members but does not protect political donors from being identified Unless the public clearly understands how the First Amendment has functioned to protect us in the past, our liberties may be eroded in the future. The Center's goal is to inform the public, the courts, administrative agencies and Congress about the proper application of the First Amendment.
