On the Wednesday of November 29th, 2017, the Northern Illinois University Young Americans for Liberty chapter held an event in the common areas of the university supporting the idea of free speech on college campuses. This was alongside our Leadership Institute Representative, Mr. Nathan Williamson, who we worked with to gather signatures for a petition in support of the free speech. During the event, we would hold up two boards titled “Free Speech Welcome”, encouraging people to both sign the petition and write on the boards, as a way of showing their support of free speech.
Working from the hours of 11:00 am to 3:30 pm, we gathered over 130 signatures! It was an amazing experience, and one I know our chapter is excited to repeat again next semester!Published in
