There will be a briefing before the education sub-committee of the California Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on Thursday, April 29, 2010. The topic of the briefing is “Free Speech on California Public University and College Campuses.”
This is hearing is open to the public and the testimony will be sent to Washington.
The reason for this briefing is that there are members of the California Advisory Committee who think anti-harrassment speech policies on university campuses contradict the right to free speech. Other committee members believe such policies are motivated to ensure that all students, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or disability have equal access to education without being harrassed, or having to suffer a hostile learning environment. What do you think? Make your voice heard if you are a California resident.
Send us your emails and we will pass them along to the acting western regional director of the US Commission on Civil Rights, or contact us if you are interested in attending.
