The Free Speech Ball

On October 19, 2017 the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at Suny Brockport decided to test how free our speech here on campus really is. My school has been said to be very good and constitutional when it comes to free speech. To some professors on campus, our free speech  ball event was an attack to students feelings and their own. At multiple points throughout the day different professors came up to us and tried to lecture us on feelings and tried to make us censor the words being written; this happened for almost an hour. One positive that came out of this event was a professor that was intelligent enough to sit down and have some civil discourse with us about libertarianism vs progressivism. All in all it was a successful free speech event.
