2019 Law Day: Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society
Bruce D. Brown, Executive Director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press 

Wednesday, May 1, 2019
Noon - 1:30 pm
The City Club of Cleveland
850 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland OH 44114

The 2019 Law Day theme, "Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society," focuses on these cornerstones of representative government and calls on us to understand and protect these rights to ensure, as the U.S. Constitution proposes, "the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity."

The right to free speech and a free press is what distinguishes the United States from other countries around the world. It's a foundation of our democracy - yet, it is one that many believe is under threat as newspapers diminish and as journalists increasingly face death threats, detention, and censorship.

Bruce D. Brown is the Executive Director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, which provides pro bono legal representation, amicus curiae support, and other legal resources to protect First Amendment freedoms and the newsgathering rights of journalists.

Join us for a conversation on free speech and the free press - and the historical and current debates surrounding them which challenge us to consider their boundaries and resilience.

Making Sense of Local Judicial Elections

Tuesday, May 7, 2019
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Heights Library Main Branch
2345 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

  • Deborah Coleman, Esq., Chair, Judicial Candidates Rating Coalition
  • The Honorable C. Ellen Connally, Cleveland Municipal Court (retired)
  • Judge J.J. Costello, Cleveland Heights Municipal Court
  • Judge Robert C. McClelland, Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas
  • Moderated by Marcia Goldberg, LWV-Greater Cleveland
Did you know that far too many Ohio voters skip the judicial portion of their ballot? Some call it ballot fatigue, or the SAT effect—but the reality is that most voters don’t know who or what they’re voting for. Our panelists will explain the structure of the Ohio judicial system and the role local judges play in our everyday lives. And they’ll give you the tools you need to research judicial candidates so you can make informed choices on Election Day. Please join us on Tuesday, May 7 – and bring a friend!
