The First Amendment guarantees Americans the right to speak freely. Or does it?

Liberal-dominated censorship on social media is increasingly limiting free debate. This could profoundly affect the 2020 elections. But free market competition could change this. A handful of startups are challenging the dominance of tech titans such as Facebook, YouTube (Google), and Twitter, offering alternative platforms with more robust free speech guarantees. The leaders of two such startups, Parler and Rumble, will speak to the Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley to share a report from the front lines in the battle between free speech and tech tyranny.

Parler is an unbiased social media focused on real user experiences and engagement. Free expression without violence and no censorship. Parler never shares your personal data.

John Matze, CEO of Parler, computer scientist and software consultant on projects ranging from the Hellfire missile to cloud storage infrastructure.

Jeffrey Wernick, COO of Parler, angel investor, and lecturer at the University of Chicago. 

Rumble is a censorship free, full-service video sharing platform connecting creators and publishers to monetize and protect their content, through a variety of distribution and licensing models.

Chris Pavlovski, CEO & Founder of Rumble, a serial entrepreneur with successful ventures across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Who knew so many fired-up, loud-and-proud, liberty-loving, red-blooded patriots occupied Big Tech's Ground Zero? At a time in America when fear and hatred have hijacked so many public places and spaces, the Liberty Forum stands out as a bastion of free speech, association, and discussion. I won't forget the warmth, courage, and spirit of your remarkable club. Onward!
