FIRE President Greg Lukianoff has had a packed schedule of speeches this fall, having spoken at multiple campuses in Ohio, North Carolina, Texas, and Washington, DC.
A video of his "Unlearning Liberty" speech given at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is available below.
The speech, given during UNC’s First Amendment Day, highlights some of FIRE’s most shocking cases and explores what is at stake if students are not made aware of their rights. As Greg says:
"What I fear is that students feel that they have a duty to silence speech that is unprogressive or uncomfortable. Worst of all, I see in a lot of students that they see this as a noble or romantic end. I think that’s a long term threat to the health of our democracy."
