Express Yourself or Suppress Yourself? Free Speech on Campus

Thursday, April 13 at 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Seeley G. Mudd Building (SGM)
Los Angeles, CA 90089

College used to be grounded in the inviolate principle that each of us should confront new ideas, speak our minds, and learn. Has that time passed?

This year alone we have seen a riot at U.C. Berkeley and violence at Middlebury college over controversial speakers.

Instead of “express yourself,” a new view seems to be taking hold: “Suppress yourself—or I’ll do it for you.”

What is happening to free speech on campus?

On Thursday, April 13, join the Ayn Rand Institute, the University of South California Political Student Assembly and Young Americans for Liberty, and our distinguished panelists for a special discussion focused on this question. 

The event is free and includes a catered reception, and the first 50 students to arrive will receive a free book! Please RSVP by April 12.

PANELISTS:

Colin Moriarty — Creator and host of "Colin's Last Stand"

Dave Rubin (moderator) — Creator and host of "The Rubin Report"

Steve Simpson — Editor of "Defending Free Speech" and director of Legal Studies at the Ayn Rand Institute 

LOCATION: Room 124 in the Seeley G. Mudd Building, the University of Southern California, 3620 McClintock Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90089

TIME: The event will begin with a reception at 6 pm followed by the panel at 7 pm.
