Come join us for an incredible documentary, hosted by the League of Women Voters, about the fight for free speech in Montana in the Early 1900’s, and the passing of the harsh sedition act in 1918, that wasn’t repealed until the 1970’s. This film follows the stories of those jailed during that time for speaking out against the government and opposing World War One. Followed by a Q&A discussion panel with one of the films Directors, Clem Work, a retired UM Journalism Professor, and Jim Taylor, the Legal Director of the ACLU of Montana. This film is free and open to the public, and is a must see for those interested in Montana History and Constitutionally Protected Free Speech. There will even be the opportunity to sign up to receive a free pocket book Constitution, delivered right to your door. Join the conversation and learn about the current state of our liberties in the state of Montana. We hope to see you there!
