Freedom of Speech Week

Students are invited to celebrate freedom of speech week at Vol State on October 21.

Freedom of speech week is October 18-24, and focuses on first amendment rights.

“I think freedom of speech is one of our most important constitutional rights,” said Len Assante, associate professor and communications chair. “Freedom of speech is the ability to express yourself publicly about whatever topic you want.”

Several activities will be available on Thursday October 21 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., and includes a “Free Speech Zone.” The free speech zone is an area in which students are encouraged to voice their opinion about any subject. Students will have one minute to speak. Content must not be treasonous, slanderous or profane.

Activities will take place in Duffer Plaza in the courtyard by the water fountain. The water fountain is located in between the Wood Campus Center and Warf building.
