                     We are a country founded on the right of individuals to express themselves. We believe in the fundamental right to share thoughts, views, facts, and ideas. That right—and the ability to practice it—is essential to both individuals and entrepreneurs. It fosters competition, spurs debate, enhances diversity of thought, and increases options in the marketplace of products and services. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the essential right of expression for citizens as well as entrepreneurs.

But there are new challenges to freedom of expression, particularly for businesses. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will explore these challenges at a program on December 3, 2014, bringing together constitutional experts, legal scholars, and policy and opinion leaders to discuss today’s First Amendment environment and its impacts upon businesses in the public square.
