At Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, we continue to honor the legacy of President Roosevelt and his vision for a world based on four essential human freedoms. This year, we dedicate ourselves to celebrating the first pillar of President Roosevelt’s four freedoms: freedom of speech and expression. This essential human right forms the foundation of our democracy. As our event season begins, we look forward to fostering civic engagement through a slate of programs emphasizing the importance of free speech.
