The Project

All of this free expression activity and potential that has so inspired me is dependent upon the network remaining free of censorship and regulated with the goal of protecting free speech rights. Emma sought to expand the capacity of free speech advocates to resist the growing state and federal threats to online speech, in particular to the access of young people to social networks and other online fora. Emma used advocacy, education, and, if needed, litigation to prevent unconstitutional restrictions on lawful speech online.
