Freedom of speech, the press, association, assembly, and petition: This set of guarantees, protected by the First Amendment, comprises what we refer to as freedom of expression. It is the foundation of a vibrant democracy, and without it, other fundamental rights, like the right to vote, would wither away.

Whether it's peaceful mass demonstrations at the base of Mauna Kea or censorship on social media, the ACLU of Hawai‘i ensures that people are able to freely and safely exercise their right to freedom of expression.
