Protect free speech on college campuses


Protect free speech on college campuses

You can help college students stand up to government overreach

Public universities are bound by the First Amendment. University officials cannot punish students for their faith, silence their speech, or censor their points of view.

But if you’ve paid attention to current events, you know that First Amendment violations on campus are a widespread problem. Universities continue to overstep their authority, and punish Christian, conservative, and pro-life students for standing up for what they believe.

This must stop. Universities must be reminded that they have a duty to protect the rights of all students.

With the help of people like you, the ADF Center for Academic Freedom (CAF) comes alongside students to hold universities accountable and stand up for their rights.

One of the quickest and most effective ways that CAF attorneys help protect students is by sending demand letters to universities that have violated students’ First Amendment rights. The letters remind university officials of their duty under the law and give them the chance to make things right while avoiding expensive and lengthy litigation.

But sending these letters comes at a cost.

Together we can protect freedom on campus

Today’s college students are the future of our society and government. They must be free to respectfully disagree and share opposing viewpoints if we expect them to become successful leaders.

But each year, we receive many calls from college students whose free speech rights have been violated on their campus.

They desperately need help to defend their First Amendment freedoms. And because ADF doesn’t charge clients for the legal defense we provide, their fight isn’t possible without you.

This work to protect free speech on college campuses is wholly dependent on God’s provision (John 15:5) and your prayers and support. It costs about $6,000 to create and send just one demand letter in defense of freedom.

That’s why your tax-deductible gift today is so critical.

We’re just a few months into a new semester and already the calls have been rolling in. Today you can help fund the next demand letter on behalf of a student who is boldly taking a stand for freedom on campus.

  • 50 people who donate $120 = 1 demand letter

If you care deeply about preserving freedom in this country, and you want to make your influence felt on campuses across the U.S., please consider making a tax-deductible gift today.

These students are counting on you.
