Please join the Center for Democracy & Technology, in partnership with the Freedom Forum Institute, Charles Koch Institute and WAMU's 1A, for a one-day symposium on the future of speech online.


Online communities are a central part of the lives of many. At their best, these communities create new connections, break down barriers, and lift up their members. But some online communities also drive polarization, spread false news, or coordinate harassment. How do these different communities develop and evolve—and how do they fit into the larger landscape of online speech?
