Greg Lukianoff on bullying laws and free speech

Bullying v Free Speech - Do I have the right to hurt your feelings?
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - 12:30
In the wake of Tyler Clementi's tragic suicide there were calls for anti-bullying laws on campuses across the nation.  However, do well-intentioned anti-bullying laws run afoul of the fundamental liberty of free speech?  Greg Lukianoff of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) will come to Rutgers - Camden to debate this very important topic.   Join us on September 19th at 12:30 PM for a debate and FREE LUNCH (as always). This event is co-sponsored by OUTLAWS.
