The First Amendment: 21st Century Edition
In a talk entitled “The First Amendment: 21st Century Edition”, Maxwell Nosbisch, Manager of Visitor Experiences at the First Amendment Museum in Augusta, discusses the evolving rights of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition in the modern era.

The First Amendment to the Constitution protects our rights to religion, press, speech, assembly, and petition. In the changing political and cultural climate, it is not always clear what actions and statements are protected and which are considered censorship, hate speech, or illegal gatherings and forms of redress. In his presentation geared towards the general public, Maxwell will guide the audience through the First Amendment and what it means in these modern times followed by an interactive discussion with participants.

The First Amendment Museum, located in Augusta, Maine, is a relatively new, nonpartisan, nonprofit dedicated to promoting the understanding and use of the First Amendment in order to advance democracy so that all may reap the benefits.
