Join the SNF Agora Institute for a discussion on the importance of fostering spaces for free speech as a means to advance democracy and defend against authoritarianism. The conversation will consider how we can promote free speech—including spirited dissent and disagreement—in ways that recognize and respect each other’s humanity and ensure that all voices can be heard.
