Ways I Exercise

this Right

At school, home, family, place of worship, community etc.

How Would Life be Different Without this Right?

Congress shall make no law…respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…


The government can't set up an official religion, or stop you from believing what you choose.






...or abridging the freedom of speech…


The government can't stop you from expressing your thoughts using words or what is often called "symbolic speech."





…or the press…




The government can't prevent the news media from reporting, or punish journalists for publishing true statements (or even false statements they honestly believed to be true.)






…or the right of the people peaceably to assemble…





The government can't stop you from holding or attending meetings in places where you have the right to be (though it can require you get a permit in some cases, and you have no right to trespass.)






…and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.




The government can't stop you from circulating or signing letters expressing your views on a government matter.
