Free Speech

Freedom of speech is protected in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights and is guaranteed to all Americans. The Supreme Court has written that this freedom is "the matrix, the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom." The ACLU of Maryland recognizes that if one person can be silenced, all of us are at risk. That is why upholding free speech is a cornerstone of our work.
