America has faced dark chapters in its history when the people had to resist and protest assaults on democracy. As we confront Trump’s authoritarianism, we need to learn from the past, fight bigotry and hatred, and restore justice and equality. Speaker Stephen Rohde will discuss public protest as part of our First Amendment right to free expression.
