D.C. Area FIRE Supporters: Greg Lukianoff Giving Free Talk at Georgetown Tonight!

By on December 5, 2013

FIRE President Greg Lukianoff will be speaking at Georgetown University tonight at 7 p.m. The talk is free and open to the public. Greg will discuss the current state of free expression on campus and the premise of his book, Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate.

Georgetown is a “red light” school in FIRE’s Spotlight database, which means the school has at least one speech code that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of expression. Though Georgetown is a private institution, it clearly promises students freedom of expression in its speech and expression policy. Fortunately, as we reported back in October, efforts are underway within the Georgetown University Student Association to make the school’s policies clearer and more protective of free speech.

When: 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, December 3
Where: Georgetown University, Bunn Intercultural Center, ICC Auditorium
Who: Sponsored by Hoyas for Liberty
Free and open to the public

FIRE supporters in the area are encouraged to attend. To invite a FIRE speaker to your school, visit FIRE’s Speakers Bureau page or email Emily Buck at emily@thefire.org to set up your lecture.
