Panel Discussion: Should Hate Speech on Social Media be Moderated?


Analyzing Hate Speech

The LA Law Library will explore the nation’s debate over restrictions on hate speech and why social media platforms are scrambling to define acceptable speech online, during a panel discussion on Tuesday, April 30 at 5:00pm.

Beverly White, a general assignment reporter with NBC4 will moderate the distinguished panel of legal and policy experts who will discuss what government’s role should be in regulating speech online and whether social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are protected by the First Amendment.

The panel is part of the Freedom of Speech Day at LA Law Library, located at 301 W. 1st Street in downtown Los Angeles.  Other programming includes Film, Free Speech & Fake News, Protecting Free Speech in the Courts and Landmark First Amendment Cases.
