Civics webinar to address free speech
The K-State College of Education's Center for Social Studies Education is co-sponsoring a free seven-week "Power to the People" webinar series for educators and concerned citizens that addresses some of the most challenging issues in American society.
This week's webinar, "The Power of Free Speech" will take place at 6:30 p.m. CDT Thursday, Oct. 22. David Hudson, visiting associate professor of legal practice at Belmont University and First Amendment ombudsman for the Freedom Forum Institute's First Amendment Center, will address the power of free speech. Advanced registration is required.
The final webinar in the series is Thursday, Oct. 29, and will address the Electoral College, gerrymandering and suppression.
The series is designed for civics, government and U.S. history teachers who want to better understand these issues; however, the public is invited to attend.
