Case Overview

In February 2023, Lewis-Clark State College’s administration ordered a curator to remove certain abortion-themed artwork from a college-operated art exhibit, citing state law. On March 15, FIRE wrote LCSC explaining that its interpretation of the law is overly broad and viewpoint discriminatory, and would restrict a wide range of constitutionally protected speech. FIRE urged LCSC to comply with its binding obligation to the First Amendment by restoring the censored artwork and clarifying that it won’t suppress free expression on campus.
