Freedom of speech is a vital First Amendment guarantee that must be protected and upheld in our country. However, it has become increasingly evident that state and federal governments are imposing restrictions and censorship on people’s ability to express themselves freely. This ultimately limits the creativity and diversity of ideas that individuals can share without fear of retaliation or persecution. Join Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the world’s largest legal organization dedicated to safeguarding religious freedom, free speech, the sanctity of life, parental rights, and traditional marriage and family, for an enlightening NRB Forum on “Freedom in the Balance: Will Americans Remain Free to Say What They Believe?”
On Tuesday, May 23, NRB invites you to hear ADF case representatives, who are passionate about creating custom art for people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life, share their experiences of striving to continue in their creative endeavors without government interference. These fearless individuals will discuss how their freedom to create is being threatened by the government’s actions, which conflict with their core beliefs and values.
This live conversation, moderated by ADF Senior Counsel and Director of Government Affairs Kellie Fiedorek and sponsored by ADF, will offer valuable insights into the challenges of defending the freedom of speech and the need to protect it for all Americans.
The panel will feature ADF case representatives:
- Jack Phillips, cake artist and owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop
- Lorie Smith, graphic artist and owner of 303 Creative
- Emilee Carpenter, photographer, blogger, and owner of Emilee Carptener Photography
