A new project housed at Georgetown University studies the condition of free speech in the United States today.
Funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and led by Sanford Ungar, veteran journalist and former president of Goucher College, the Free Speech Project will document and analyze incidents in higher education and civil society that challenge free speech.
The project’s Free Speech Tracker documents such incidents over the past two years and will be continuously updated to reflect future incidents. It also follows activity in state legislatures that aim to curb public protest. The project’s site will feature video interviews with Ungar and others involved in the free speech debate.
To learn more about this project, explore the Free Speech Tracker, and review archived information about freedom of speech in the United States, please see the Free Speech Project’s website.
