What People Are Saying

“I would highly, highly recommend this conference to friends. I learned so much and I think more students ought to learn what their rights truly are.

“While the sessions and speeches were terrific, the biggest strength of the program was the outstanding opportunity to get to know other students working on their campuses to expand student rights.”

“I would recommend this conference in a heartbeat! It was a terrifically rewarding and intellectually stimulating weekend and I am so grateful to have been able to attend.”

“As was pointed out at the conference — administrators often get away with their policies because students don’t know what their rights are. Education is the most important aspect of progress in free speech.
