FIRE Speakers Championing Free Speech on Campus this Constitution Week
September 14, 2012
by Sean Clark
FIRE has some exciting speaking engagements coming up at four colleges and universities to help students celebrate Constitution Week.
Associate Director of Legal and Public Advocacy Azhar Majeed will be pounding the pavement in Indiana with back-to-back speaking engagements. First, on Monday, September 17, he will be stopping at Indiana University - Bloomington to talk with Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) after a free speech wall event at 7:00 p.m. in Ballantine Hall, room 005. After delivering a healthy dose of liberty in Bloomington, Azhar will be barnstorming Indianapolis for another event at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 18, at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis. There, he will be taking on oppressors of student expression at another free speech wall event hosted by IUPUI's YAL chapter.
Senior Vice President Robert Shibley will be leading the charge for freedom in North Carolina. Robert will open his campaign with a lecture entitled "How UNC Stifles Free Speech, and What You Can Do About It" in the Student Union, room 3411, at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill on Monday, September 17, at 5:30 p.m. Then, on Thursday, September 20, at 7:00 p.m. in the Duke University Reynolds Theater, Robert will champion free speech at his alma mater at an event entitled "Elevate: A Discussion of Ignored Policy Issues."
