The Resilience of Generosity
Rev. Louise Green
According to many wisdom traditions, we refuel our spiritual center by focusing on connecting. Cultivating generosity of spirit results in real physiological, emotional and mental benefits. Taking time out from individual concerns brings perspective. What resilience might we find through caring about others?
Contemporary Issues Forum (CC&C): 10:20 a.m.
Dangers To & Defense Of Freedom of the Press
Laura Handman, Media Law & Free Speech Attorney
The media, particularly online, is full of content that often stretches freedom of speech and freedom of the press to its limits. Concomitantly, we see litigation, some founded, some frivolous, against journalists and online content providers. Laura Handman, an experienced media law/ freedom of speech trial and appellate attorney, will talk about the delicate balancing of protecting reputation from harm and protecting freedom of speech and the press-- and the dangers journalists and media organizations face from deep pocket plaintiffs, including those seeking to settle a score against journalist/media defendants.
