Has Charlie Hebdo got your mind spinning? Come hear from a panel of experts on issues pertaining to the First Amendment. Panelists will include those in the legal and journalism fields. Patrons are encouraged to ask questions and engage in a community dialogue.

Amendment 1 to the Constitution of the United States reads: 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. 

What does this mean in theory, in practicality and in relation to other countries?
