Free Speech on Campus
Introduction
Updated: January 20, 2009

When anti-Israel incidents take place on a campus, it is natural for students to want to react with counter-rallies and protests. In doing so, it is essential for students to first plan strategically before they act. Strategic thinking combines research with action. The key to approaching anti-Israel rallies, protests, editorials, and bias in the classroom is to understand freedom of speech and how it applies on campus. Once students understand their rights, they can take appropriate action to make sure those rights are upheld. In some situations, the response may be to plan a counter-protest; and, in other situations, there may be positive opportunities to share their message.
