Free speech is the cornerstone to any free society. Students at public institutions of higher learning should feel free to speak their minds, ask questions, and be intellectually curious. However, currently these schools do not have any provisions for incentivizing or even protecting these rights. In many cases it is just the opposite, schools have enacted and retracted certain speech codes and speech zones for years.
Twenty-two states and counting have enacted legislation to protect free speech, expression, and association. We must learn to speak and listen to one another again.
Ask the Education Committee to support House Bill 516 to protect free speech on college campuses!
