IPAK & FIRST FREEDOMS PRESENT
Cornerstones of Freedom
You are invited to join us for the inaugural event "Cornerstones of Freedom", a groundbreaking speaker series, featuring speakers from across the country who will inspire people to take action and combat the un-American forces of censorship threatening free speech.
Dr. James Lyons-Weiler and Kevin Barry, Esq., are teaming up with a panel of experts to ignite and engage the citizens of this country to rise up in defense of our First Amendment freedoms.
Cornerstones of Freedom is an intimate discussion interpreting the current climate on censorship, our rights, and how we must collectively defend our civil liberties. This is about big ideas and bold actions. It’s about preserving the marketplace of ideas. It's about pushing back against censorship in social media and traditional media. It's about empowerment. It's about fighting for the ideals upon which this country was founded.
It's time to stand up, speak up, rise up and be heard- we will not be silenced into submission!
