Freedom of Assembly

Freedom of assembly is the right of individuals to gather peacefully in public places in order to share, discuss, or otherwise express their opinions, including through protest and other forms of dissent. The right to petition afforded by the First Amendment allows one to contact the government without fear of retaliation for the sole reason of contacting them. Common issues addressed by these cases include contacting one’s government in order to express an opinion or to complain.
