The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is

a part of the United States Bill of Rights. It prohibits the

federal legislature from making laws that establish religion (the

"Establishment Clause") or prohibit free exercise of religion (the

"Free Exercise Clause"), laws that infringe the freedom of speech,

infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to assemble

peaceably, or limit the right to petition the government for a

redress of grievances.
