Putting the “Freedom” In “Freedom of Speech”

Coe College YAL had two milestones this semester: 

  1. We were approved as an official group on campus
  2. We held our very first Free Speech wall this past week. While some were a little reluctant to express their views, others were jumping with joy as their chance to exercise their freedom of speech.

There were many controversial quotes and phrases, including one that read “I like muffins more than cupcakes.” We passed out a few Constitutions and educated our fellow students on their First Amendment rights.

As soon as Iowa exits the ice age it enters around this time each year, we will do a Free Speech Ball, and maybe even play a game of Pin the Drone on the War Zone.
