Be an Advocate

Our vision is an America in which people unapologetically support the right of others to freely express views that are different from their own, and expect their laws, norms, and educational institutions to reflect, teach and protect this belief. Help us get there by taking action today!

Fired up? Become an advocate

We recognize that colleges and universities play a vital role in preserving free thought within a free society. To this end, we place a special emphasis on educating and empowering college students and faculty to advocate for their civil liberties on our nation’s campuses.

As confidence in higher education reaches historic lows and colleges struggle to respond to contentious social and political issues, now is the time to demand college presidents and trustees re-establish their institutions as communities devoted to the discovery, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge.
