What Policymakers Need to Know About the First Amendment and Section 230

The Supreme Court is about to hear two cases - Twitter v. Taamneh, and Gonzalez v. Google - that could dramatically affect users’ speech rights online, and we invite you to a panel discussing what legislators need to know about these cases, the history of Section 230, and the First Amendment’s protections for online speech.

Please join the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Reddit, and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) for a panel discussion on these two cases before the court, along with remarks from Sen. Ron Wyden, one of the original architects of Section 230.

The panel will include:

  • Aaron Mackey, Senior Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation
  • Jessica Ashooh, Director of Policy, Reddit
  • Emma Llanso, Director of the Free Expression Project, Center for Democracy and Technology

We hope you will be able to attend this timely and important briefing. To RSVP, please click the button below by March 2 at 6pm. For more information, please contact India McKinney at
