The 1st Amendment of the united states constitution

The first amendment of the United States Constitution says that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The freedom of speech is a right that many countries don't have! The U.S. constitution gives us this right!

Freedom of the Press allows television, newspapers, and other media tools to publish truthful stories without interference of the government.

Freedom of Religion- The U.S. is not allowed to set a national religion. The U.S. allows choice in religion.

Freedom of Assembly: Allows for people to stand up for what they believe is right peacefully
