Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to assemble, and the right to petition the government.

The amendment states:

"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."
Freedom of religion, speech, and assembly
