Tonight at 6:30: Prof. Jeremy Waldron and FIRE’s Azhar Majeed Debate Hate Speech

November 6, 2014

Tonight, at Suffolk University’s C. Walsh Theatre in Boston, FIRE’s own Azhar Majeed will square off against Jeremy Waldron, a professor of law at New York University and author of The Harm in Hate Speech, on the question of whether the United States should adopt European-style hate speech laws. (Spoiler: Azhar will be arguing the “no” side!)

The debate is co-presented by Ford Hall Forum and the Suffolk University Forensics Team, and it will be moderated by Boston Globe reporter Hiawatha Gray. Boston-area folks can register for the event on the Ford Hall Forum’s website; the rest of us will have to wait for a recap from Azhar!
