“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” –George Orwell
Does the first amendment have any limitations on modern American college campuses? Join us as we discuss the ethics of stating our opinions at the 12th annual Fall Ethics Symposium at CSUS & CRC. Delve into these ideas during the day, then explore your thoughts while connecting with peers and professors at evening socials. Registration is free and all meals are included.
