The ACLU-WA Civil Liberties 101 series presents introductory overviews of vital civil rights and civil liberties issues. Each class covers historical perspectives on landmark cases and updates on current law and policy.
This installment commemorates the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Organization (WTO) protests. ACLU cooperating attorneys discuss the right to parade, picket, leaflet, circulate petitions and otherwise express political beliefs in public. Learn about the kinds of regulations on speech activities that the government may enforce and the kinds of restrictions which are not permitted by the United States and Washington constitutions.
Cases include October 22nd Coalition v. City of Seattle, in which the ACLU-WA represented an activist group in successfully challenging the City of Seattle's parade ordinance.
MOHAI is dedicated to enriching lives by preserving, sharing and teaching the diverse history of Seattle, the Puget Sound region and the nation.
Please arrive early or stay on to enjoy the exhibits. The museum is open until 5:00 pm.
