The First Amendment protects the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. These freedoms allow citizens to express their ideas, opinions, and beliefs—a hallmark of being American.
The right to vote is one of the most essential American freedoms. In our democracy, elected representatives are held accountable to “We the People.”
The checks and balances of power between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches safeguard our freedoms by preventing any single branch from becoming too powerful.
The Fourth Amendment protects people from “unreasonable searches and seizures.” We try to find the right balance between catching criminals and protecting privacy.
The Sixth Amendment protects the right to a fair trial by jury. As part of that right, Americans also have the responsibility to serve on juries.
