What you should know
Because the guarantee of free speech is fundamental to our democratic system, Public Citizen litigation defends speech rights, including government employees’ right to speak on matters of public concern and consumers’ right to criticize companies. We also push hard against efforts to use the First Amendment to insulate corporations from consumer protections.
We defend individuals’ speech rights and fight against corporate expansion of “speech.” See our legal briefs, articles, and policy papers on the First Amendment.
Internet Free Speech
Public Citizen has developed a program of litigation to protect the rights of individuals to exchange ideas and criticism on online platforms.
