Colorado Transit Authority Reverses Unconstitutional Restriction on Speech

January 22, 2014

Liberty Counsel successfully defended the First Amendment rights of a Pueblo, Colorado, citizen who regularly engages in street witnessing at Pueblo Transit Center bus terminal and its surrounding sidewalks. A transit director suddenly prohibited the one-to-one conversations and Gospel tract distribution, citing a city code prohibiting throwing of handbills or literature on the ground in public places.

A policy forbidding literature distribution and conversation with others inside the bus terminal is unconstitutional as a violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Liberty Counsel is committed to protecting the rights of all Americans to spread the Gospel and live out their faith. The government cannot censor speech solely because public officials disagree with the message. We are pleased that the City of Pueblo revised its policy to protect free speech.
