The next speaker in the series is Sandy Bohrer, a First Amendment rights lawyer for almost 50 years, who also worked in the human rights arena. At the University of Miami School of Communication, he teaches Children and the Media, as well as Hate Speech and the Media. He has been heavily involved in the child welfare system and presently is on the Board and Executive Committee of Citrus Health Network.
