Speech First Enters Campus Free Speech Wars
On America’s college campuses, students with views that differ from progressive thought are openly or quietly pressured to remain silent. A new membership organization, Speech First, has been formed to defend their First Amendment rights. Its president, Nicole Neily, says it’s for frustrated students, parents, alumni and concerned citizens.

She describes bias response teams persecuting students for speaking their minds. It chills speech and intimidates. Nicole says it’s a crisis that must be solved.
