How Should The ACLU Balance Anti-Racism And Free Speech?

There are internal disputes at the American Civil Liberties Union over its tradition of defending all speech, including neo-Nazi protests and Klan rallies. On today's show, Nadine Strossen, professor of law at New York Law School, former president of the American Civil Liberties Union, member of the ACLU’s National Advisory Council, and author of HATE: Why We Should Resist It With Free Speech, Not Censorship (Oxford University Press, 2020), and Elie Mystal, justice correspondent for The Nation and consultant for Radiolab, discuss how The American Civil Liberties Union is grappling with prioritizing cases, and whether First Amendment battles are more important than other, more progressive battles.
