Being necessary to a free and just society, the right to speech and self expression shall not be abridged by the Congress of the American Wizarding Confederation. Every witch and wizard shall be guaranteed the freedom of speech, the freedom to publish, the freedom to assemble peaceably, and the freedom to petition Congress or their regional governments for redress for a list of grievances. Further, Congress claims no religious affiliation and will make no law to abridging or supporting the private spiritual or religious convictions of any individual.
The Second Article of the Wizarding Bill of Rights closely mirrors the First Amendment of the Muggle American Constitution (though it technically predates that document). It has had its share of legal challenges since its inception, including the definition of the words “personal” and “private.”
