We work to ensure that advocates are free to express themselves and support issues that matter to them without the fear of reprisal. We’ve also got the backs of journalists who face pushback from the government as a result of their work to hold politicians accountable and to increase government transparency.
Every American has the constitutional right to support issues they believe in without fear of harassment or retaliation. And it’s not the government’s businesses which groups or causes you support. But across the United States, politicians are working overtime to silence those who seek to hold them accountable, those who favor greater government transparency, or those who hold points of view different from their own. To scare Americans into staying silent, politicians are enacting laws aimed at publicizing their advocacy, called “disclosure laws.”
By naming and shaming individuals who support different viewpoints, these laws effectively prevent everyday Americans from speaking out to advance causes they believe in. We won’t let these crucial First Amendment rights be trampled on.
Liberty Justice Center has worked with advocates in New Mexico, Illinois, Montana, and New Jersey to strike down unfair “disclosure” laws.
We’re representing journalists in Wisconsin and Illinois facing government impediments to doing their job.
Liberty Justice Center is on the front lines of fighting to protect your free speech rights. Our attorneys already are challenging so-called “disclosure” requirements in New Mexico, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Montana. We’ve also got the backs of journalists who face pushback from the government as a result of their work to hold politicians accountable and to increase government transparency.
