Central Washington University: Student Group Faces De-funding for Protected Expression

Category: Free Speech
Schools: Central Washington University

FIRE successfully intervened to protect the rights of a student group at Central Washington University after the student government threatened to de-fund the groups for engaging in constitutionally protected expression. The College Republicans were investigated and faced possible loss of funding after they posted flyers promoting an on-campus speech by controversial illegal immigration opponent and Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist.
