The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which concern an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on 19 December 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the US Bill of Rights.[1]
