Noah Petersen

October 12, 2023

Noah Petersen was born and raised in Newton, Iowa—a small town just outside of Des Moines. Last year, Noah became concerned with how the Newton Police Department was mistreating its citizens after a peer of his was harassed and falsely arrested. Noah decided to attend a city council meeting so he could voice his concerns about the Newton Police Department. There he was silenced, arrested and prosecuted for engaging in free speech.
