Free Speech, Private Speech, Government Speech

David Bisno, M.D., Constitutional Law Scholar

Who is speaking when our government accepts the donation of a monument from a private group for placement in a public park? Or issues license plates with a message favored by one group but not by another? May the state require a citizen to carry the government’s message? Or look at it? Are the restrictions on government speech different than those on private speech? Join us to discuss these thorny and provocative questions.
