The First Admendment and You: How the Five Freedoms Apply to Your Life

Maranacook SOUL presents: The First Amendment and You: How the Five Freedoms Apply to Your Life

Join Maxwell Nosbisch Manager of Visitor Experiences at the First Amendment Museum in Augusta on Thursday April 8, 2021 at 7pm via Zoom: https://networkmaine.zoom.us/j/9403386419

This event is for students, but open to anyone in our community to attend free of charge and sponsored by the Maranacook Chapter of the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society. 

When can my speech be limited? What is the press allowed to publish or not? What does freedom of religion mean? What does a peaceful assembly look like? This webinar will be an active discussion in which staff from the First Amendment Museum, located in Augusta, Maine, will engage with Maranacook Community High School students on how the First Amendment applies to their lives and how they can optimize their usage of the five freedoms. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions, contribute their opinions, and share their ideas. The goal of this webinar is for participants to more fully understand how they can 'live their freedoms!
