ERIE, Pa. - April 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Nadine Strossen, New York Law School Professor Emerita, past president of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and one of the nation's leading intellectuals on freedom of speech, has joined the three-part public television documentary series, Free To Speak. As the new host of the program, Strossen succeeds P.J. O'Rourke, who was spearheading the Free To Choose Media (FTCM) project until his death in February.

"We had the opportunity to work with Professor Strossen on our recent three-hour PBS series, A More or Less Perfect Union," said FTCM President and CEO Rob Chatfield. "Her unparalleled credentials and passion for freedom of speech made her our first choice to succeed P.J., and we are delighted she agreed to come aboard as the new host."

Currently an emerita professor at New York Law School, Strossen was president of the ACLU from 1991 to 2008. She has written, taught, and advocated extensively in the areas of constitutional law and civil liberties, including through frequent media interviews and Congressional testimony.  Strossen serves on the Advisory Boards of the ACLU, Academic Freedom Alliance, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), Heterodox Academy, and the National Coalition Against Censorship.

Free To Speak is a three-part series that goes beyond the current rhetoric to explore how free speech is essential to human development.  Free speech is more than an inalienable right; it is as fundamental to being human as breathing.  The film is currently in production and is expected to air on public television in fall 2023.
