activities in your town. Next thing you know,

You have First Amendment rights to free speech, right?
Its called being SLAPP!
SLAPP is a legal device that corporations use to discourage people from
speaking out against important public issues that threaten their profits.
On September 10, Central Ohioan Mike Kovalik, long concerned with corporations
attempts to block citizens from speaking out against policies that harm our
communities, will provide an introduction to SLAPP suits.
The one-hour session is part of Move to Amend's
Speaking of Democracy series that dives into local concerns.
All are welcomed to join.
Q&A will follow the presentation.
