Disinformation and Freedom of Speech

Free and open to the public

How does a country founded on a bedrock principle of freedom of speech move forward in the age of disinformation? Join UC Berkeley thought leaders Erwin Chemerinsky , Dean of Berkeley Law; Henry Brady , Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy; and Geeta Anand , Dean of the Graduate School of Journalism for a timely discussion on the topic of the proliferation of disinformation in today’s public sphere and its intersection with a concept we hold dear: freedom of speech. Janet Napolitano , former United States Secretary of Homeland Security (2009–2013), University of California President (2013–2020), and current Professor and Faculty Director of the new Center for Security in Politics at the Goldman School of Public Policy will both moderate and participate in the discussion. Viewers will have the opportunity to submit questions for the panel upon registration.
