Our speaker today is David Roland, an attorney currently working as the Director of the Theodore L. Stiles Center for Liberty, a project of theFreedom Foundation in Olympia Washington. His presentation will be “Economic Liberty: Past, Present and Future!”.
Mr. Roland will be discussing the idea of economic liberty, explaining how our state and federal constitutions protect citizens’ right to earn a living free from unreasonable government restrictions. We’ll talk about why this freedom was important in the past (particularly to racial and ethnic minorities), how legal protections for this right have eroded over time, and what is being done to revitalize this right for the benefit of future generations.
Mr. Roland’s role consists of legal research and writing, communication with and in the media statewide, cooperation with like-minded organizations in the state of Washington and across the nation, and acting as an informational resource for private citizens and lawmakers alike on issues of constitutional law and individual liberty. His experience and expertise is in state and federal constitutional law, particularly as it pertains to religious liberties, free speech, property rights (eminent domain), economic liberties and school choice.
