Panelists will explore perspectives on freedom of expression and how power and privilege influence who truly has access to this freedom. The discussion will explore the unspoken but pervasive rules about what constitutes freedom of speech and who determines when an expression of opinion infringes on another’s freedom. We’ll look at how this access often differs for marginalized groups and how this impacts the Ryerson campus. Dr. Denise O’Neil Green (Assistant Vice-President/Vice-Provost Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) moderated the discussion.
