Courts are for those who seek justice, not revenge. A growing number of corporations, law firms, and individuals attempt to silence their critics by filing “Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation” (SLAPPs). SLAPPs violate the First Amendment rights of those who speak truth to power. We formed this task force to protect our rights - and yours - to speak out, criticize, and protest peacefully. Because democracy needs dissent.
The Task Force
SLAPPs are not a new tactic, but have grown into a larger threat in our era of polarized mass communications and drastic inequality. Learn how SLAPP bullies use the courts to silence their critics, and how free speech advocates are working to protect our rights.
