FREE SPEECH AND FREE EXPRESSION: WHAT YOU CAN SAY, PAINT WEAR AND DISPLAY – AND NOT
7:00 PM

Presented by Brenda Lee Green, ACLU
Monday, Sept. 18th at 7 p.m.
Often claims of American exceptionalism can be exaggerated, but the First Amendment really does make America unique, even within the industrialized democracies.  No other country has such stringent protections against government restrictions of free speech and a free press.  While the First Amendment was a cornerstone of the Bill of Rights when it was ratified in 1791 the reality is that federal protection of free speech rights are 20th Century provenance.  This facilitated discussion will briefly trace the legal history of the First Amendment including the substantial role the ACLU played.  From Oliver Wendell Holmes' "shouting fire in a crowded theater" to today's social media saturation, the discussion will explore issues including but not limited to hate speech/groups, Citizens United, Wiki Leaks, the Espionage Act and, of course, obscenity. Brenda Lee Green joined the ACLU as a high school senior and has maintained a three decade relationship with the ACLU of Pennsylvania as a member, volunteer, donor, and board member. Most of her work with the ACLU involves fighting censorship.

Join us for an exciting book talk that will inspire you to contemplate your own life's extraordinary moments.

WEIGHTLOSS CHALLENGE
7:00 PM

Guest Speaker: Dr. Christopher Carr, Pittsburgh Chiropractic & Wellness
Wednesday, Oct. 18th at 7 p.m.
Even though your first motivation for dropping those pounds might be looking better, losing weight is really a product of becoming healthier. The fact is that being overweight is commonly linked to a host of avoidable health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Not to mention that the causes of obesity can often make you feel unwell. You do not need another diet book or weight loss shake. You need a plan, backed by cutting edge science on how to turn your body into a fat burning machine so you lose the weight and keep it off for good!
Part 1: Weight Loss / Nutrition Presentation from 7:00pm to 7:45pm
Part 2: Workout Session (high intensity interval training) from 7:45pm to 8:30pm
*Be sure to bring or wear workout clothes if participating in Part 2
Held in Council Chambers.
