Help us kick off Carolina’s ninth-annual First Amendment Day!
Several members of the Carolina community will speak about our First Amendment freedoms and the value of those freedoms to UNC’s mission, to our democracy, and to ourselves.
These are the people who will speak:

- Susan King, dean of the UNC School of Media and Journalism.
- Cathy Packer, W. Horace Carter Distinguished Professor in the UNC School of Media and Journalism and co-director of the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy.
- Elizabeth Adkins, UNC’s student body president and a senior journalism and political science major, will read the First Amendment.
This event was organized by UNC School of Media and Journalism Associate Professor Michael Hoefges.
