Congress to look at campus free speech codes 

Reports Erin O'Connor of Critical Mass: "The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education's ongoing campaign to eliminate speech codes on campus is drawing the attention of Washington. Tomorrow, FIRE's director of legal and public advocacy, Greg Lukianoff, will testify before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions..."

From FIRE's press release:

From Lukianoff will also inform the Senate about one of the consequences of these institutions' refusal to educate their students in freedom: the epidemic of college newspaper thefts that is plaguing the nation. Censorship of this kind usually involves students throwing away or even burning newspapers containing viewpoints with which they disagree. In the past decade, this brand of censorship has resulted in the theft of hundreds of thousands of copies of student newspapers.
Looking forward to the testimony.
