On September 20th the University of Central Missouri YAL chapter took to campus to talk to their fellow students about free speech on college campuses. Many students were shocked by the thought of Free speech zones, and were furious when they found out that they actually exist.
People where excited to have an outlet for creativity, by the end of the day our free speech ball was absolutely filled with people asking “What did Harambe know about Hillary Clinton?” or “Go UCM girls Basketball!” We spent a whole day in front of our student union collecting signatures and getting signups. The response was outstanding, people on campus want to be able to speak their mind and exchange ideas.
After a whole day of handing out pocket constitutions, getting signups, and talking about these free speech zones on college campuses we walked away with over 200 signatures on our petition for our fight for free speech!
