Online Hate and Free Speech: Where Do We Draw the Line?

Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013, 6:30 p.m.
in the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum
555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.

The rapid growth of the Internet has sparked robust debate about the boundaries of free speech. Racists, cyberbullies, terrorists and hate-mongers use the Internet to recruit and incite. Should governments restrict cyber hate? Where should Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets draw the line? Join leading experts on Internet speech for a lively discussion about the challenges of online hate.

The event is free, but reservations are required. RSVP to ahampton@newseum.org.
