Freedom of expression

Teresa Tagliaferri, a 21 year-old sociology and health science double major at Stony Brook University, is like many of her peers in regards to what she believes her right to freedom of expression is.

When putting on the screening of the film “Free the Nipple” at her quad last month, Tagliaferri was nervous about playing such a controversial film, but was encouraged by her supervisor that the event was not harmful or inappropriate, but informational because of the important topic the film discusses, such as freedom of expression.

Tagliaferri knows that while some things are not appropriate to say or post online, every person should be allowed to express themselves freely without worry of consequences.
