Free Speech Week (FSW) is a yearly event to raise public awareness of the importance of free speech in our democracy and to celebrate that freedom. As freedom of speech is a right all Americans share, this non-partisan, non-ideological event is intended to be a unifying celebration. This year’s Free Speech Week is observed October 16-22, 2017.
In celebration of Free Speech Week, all of Hawaiʻi’s PEG access organizations (Akakū on Maui, Ho’ike on Kauaʻi, Nā Leo on the Big Island, and ʻŌlelo on Oʻahu) came together to create a series of public service announcements (PSAs) featuring active producers/volunteers from their respective organizations. The PSAs will be airing on all of the PEG access channels throughout Free Speech Week. You can see ʻŌlelo’s PSAs here:
