‘The First Amendment and Trademark with Simon Tam’ coming to UW-Green Bay on Sunday, April 28

Green Bay, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will be presenting “The First Amendment and Trademark with Simon Tam” on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 2 p.m. in the Phoenix Rooms located in the University Union.

Tam is the founder of the world’s first all-Asian American dance rock band, The Slants. But he is perhaps best-known for The Slants’ landmark legal battle in the Supreme Court (Matel v. Tam) that helped expand First Amendment rights in trademark law for minority communities. Tam is an author, activist and motivational speaker and has made multiple TEDx appearances.
