Apple CEO, Tim Cook, spoke up for free speech, tolerance, and standing up to protect the First Amendment when he accepted the Free Expression award in the Free Speech category at the Newseum in April 2017.
“Freedoms require protection”
Located in Washington DC, the Newseum promotes, explains and defends free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.
Cook took time to stress the value of free speech and the importance of allowing others to articulate ideas that you as a listener may find difficult.
“We know that these freedoms require protection,” he said, standing among exhibitions that include the 911 Gallery and Pullitzer Prize winners.
