“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the
United States Congress from enacting legislation that would abridge the
right of the people to assemble peaceably. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution makes this prohibition applicable to state governments.
The First Amendment does not provide the right to conduct an assembly
at which there is a clear and present danger of riot, disorder, or
interference with traffic on public streets, or other immediate threat
to public safety or order. Statutes that prohibit people from assembling and using force or
violence to accomplish unlawful purposes are permissible under the
First Amendment. Library Of Congress.
"My work is simply an attempt to say to America that you have a marvelous ideal, you should live up to it." Martin Luther King Jr.
