Freedom of Assembly

Freedom of Assembly (1960)

National Women’s League has been alert and concerned with the menace of bigots who have abused the civil liberties of free speech and free assembly, in spreading hatred of the Jew. Nevertheless, we reaffirm our belief that freedom of speech and assembly must be held inviolate because they are basic to a free society and cannot be curtailed without serious consequences to the freedom of all citizens.

Freedom of Assembly (1958)

National Women’s League reaffirms its conviction that freedom of expression and association are rights guaranteed to all citizens by our Constitution which cannot be curtailed without serious consequences to the freedom of all citizens.

Our American heritage not only welcomes the concept of voluntary associations, but deems it an indispensable part of a democratic, pluralistic society. We recognize that freedom of association, as the freedom of worship and speech, must be preserved for the benefit of the community at large because it facilitates the dissemination of knowledge and enables us the better to fulfill our obligations and informed citizens.
