Western Illinois University Free Speech Activism

On November 13th, the WIU YAL chapter held its first event on campus. We set up a table outside of the free speech zone to collect free speech signatures, give information about the group to potential members, and simply promote free speech. We did this for around two hours with no setbacks from campus administration and gathered around 80 signatures on our free speech petition. Our next steps are to work with the Director of Free Speech and see if we can remove these free speech zones and restore the First Amendment. It was great to have an LI field rep present help us out.
