Free Speech Forum

The American Democracy Project at JSU will be hosting a Free Speech Forum in Fall 2023. 

This event will feature individuals with expertise in Constitutional Law, the history of Free Speech, and former policymakers who have actively participated in First Amendment issues. The featured topic is Free Speech as it applies in the general sense to all American citizens (students, staff, faculty, community members, etc.) and not exclusively to professors and academic freedom, although we do welcome both academic and "real world" questions.

This is a separate event from The Tocqueville Lecture Series. The TLS will sponsor a forum on campus that exclusively addresses professors and academic freedom on March 30 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. featuring Dr. Jonathan Marks from Ursinus College, so professors are encouraged to attend this event in person or virtually for a detailed discussion and Q and A regarding academic freedom.
