Following a screening of the new film “Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press," EFF Civil Liberties Director David Greene will join a panel of experts, including filmmaker Brian Knappenberger, to discuss the First Amendment under the Trump administration. As the event organizers, TheWrap, describe the panel: "Panelists are not limited to talking about Trump; they are expected to discuss challenges to free expression and free speech in films, television, graphic arts, and the media from any quarter," including:

  • The White House assault on journalists
  • The prospect of changing our libel laws, as Trump has mentioned
  • The limits of free speech in the digital age
  • Peter Thiel and the Gawker case
  • Fake news and the consequences it has wrought

The event is at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles.
