First Amendment Audit: Preparedness 101

Join Principal and Chair of Meyers Nave’s statewide First Amendment and Trial & Litigation Practice Deborah Fox, Colusa County Administrative Officer Wendy Tyler and Corona Police Department Sergeant Ryan Brett for a webinar for California Counties and Cities on “First Amendment Audit: Preparedness 101.”

Local government offices and agencies across the country are experiencing an increase of First Amendment audits, which involves a disruptive visitor entering a public building armed with a camera with the intent to film and distribute footage of reactions.

This webinar is presented by the California State Association of Counties, the League of California Cities and the Rural County Representatives of California and will provide guidance on the legal boundaries, best practices, preemptive measures and handling the aftermath to prepare for a First Amendment audit.

Date: Friday, July 29, 2022
Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
