Freedom: 90 Min. Conversation w/ Optional 30 Min. Q&A with Hosts!

January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PST

7:00 PM EASTERN /4:00 PM PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)

Freedom is a key concept in America’s founding documents.We are proud to be a free people. This said, there are legitimate differing interpretations of what freedom means. “Live and let live” is great until the freedom to use my property as I see fit interferes with your property. Or when someone’s speech harms another person’s freedoms. Is it ever good for the government to limit an assembly of citizens? How do we celebrate our freedom and care for it so that it reflects our highest values? This conversation asks key questions and invites you to explore the many facets of freedom.

Here is the conversation guide. The questions explored include:

  • What does freedom mean to you?
  • How do you define being free? Are you free?
  • Is freedom at risk? If so, what are you concerned about?
  • What grey areas do you see when you think about this topic? How would you resolve them? 
  • What type of “harm” gives one the right to limit another’s freedom?
