Censorship has many faces. From the banning of books to the restriction of information on the internet, challenges to the free exchange of ideas are ever-evolving.

Join us for the third-annual installment of Uncensored Voices, a celebration of words & ideas and a call-to-action for anyone who cares about free speech.

The night will feature dramatic readings and an interactive discussion with experts on topics such as literary censorship in the U.S. and the future of free speech, on the internet and around the world

Special guests will include Eva Galperin, International Freedom of Expression Coordinator at the Electronic Frontier Foundation; Professor Jeanne Price, Director of the Wiener-Rogers Law Library at the William S. Boyd School of Law; Auggie Romero, ACLU of Arizona Board Member and activist, and Tony Diaz, founder of the nationwide Librotraficante (book trafficker) movement. The evening will be moderated by Las Vegas Review-Journal Political Columnist Steve Sebelius. Join us and learn what it will take to keep your voice—and all other voices—uncensored.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the program.

Co-sponsored by the ACLU of Nevada, the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, Vegas Valley Book Festival and the Black Mountain Institute at UNLV.
