Va. college system eliminates ‘free speech zones’

Alliance Defending Freedom Litigation Staff Counsel Travis Barham:  “We commend the Virginia Community College System for revising its speech policy to make it consistent with what a marketplace of ideas is supposed to be.

And we will work with VCCS to ensure that students no longer have to jump through unconstitutional hoops to exercise the freedoms that the First Amendment protects.”  Read more >>
