The Newseum at SXSW: First Amendment Report Card @ Salon G - Hilton Austin Downtown | Austin | Texas | United States

The panel will discuss how regular First Amendment report cards help cut through partisan posturing and 24-hour news cycles to track how actual laws, policies, and events impact our freedoms. The panel, made up of experts from across the political spectrum, served as graders for the 2017-2018 report card. They’ll share their thoughts on the worst (and best) things that have happened for free expression in the past year, and their advice on how Americans can safeguard their rights.


  • Robert Corn-Revere, partner in the Washington, D.C. office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
  • Lata Nott, executive director of the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center
  • Ilya Shapiro, senior fellow at the Cato Institute and editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review.

The discussion will be moderated by Gene Policinski, chief operating officer of the Newseum Institute.
