Our Common Ground
The National Conference on the First Amendment: Bedrock of American Freedoms, held at Duquesne University on October 21-22, 2018, opened a dialogue with Americans about the First Amendment and its central role in maintaining the viability of our democratic institutions. At a time when incivility and disregard for foundational principles have become the norm in our society, the conference set out to reinforce that all Americans—regardless of ideology or politics—can find common ground in a national celebration of the First Amendment.
