Free Think U DC Ambassador Will Moyer met with Alexander McCobin of Students for Liberty at CPAC 2013 to discuss the ways in which the two organizations can help each other in the fight for liberty, including academic liberty, on campuses across America. As a part of that discussion, we want to highlight one example of the great work that Students for Liberty is accomplishing.
Students For Liberty has announced the first ever Free Speech Week. With the recent success of free speech walls across the world, they will be coordinating a week of activism events to promote and defend the most critical of all liberties.
Free Speech Week will take place from April 1-8. SFL is partnering with several great organizations including the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education to help provide students with the resources needed to make Free Speech Week happen on your campus.
Free Speech Week events will range from building free speech walls to hosting speakers to screening movies and various activism events. Activism kits will be sent at no cost to student groups who request them and project grants of up to $200 will be awarded to approved events.
Also, students who lead a Free Speech Week event on their campus will be awarded 5,000 Impact Points by Free Think U.
