The harm in online speech
with University of Miami’s Mary Anne Franks 

With the click of a button, almost anyone in the world can post their thoughts, opinions or commentary online. In a moment, digital platforms intended for thoughtful discourse can quickly become polarizing and alienating spaces. How do we apply the First Amendment to ensure online platforms serve their purpose while keeping us safe? On Episode 11 of VISION, we’ll hear from Mary Anne Franks, a University of Miami law professor and president of the nonprofit Cyber Civil Rights Initiative. She’ll share her expertise on the harmful effects of online speech.

Hosted by Sam Gill | SVP/Chief Program Officer at Knight Foundation
