Think Tank: Free Speech Summit

Freedom, it’s something we all have, but something most of us take for granted. It’s something that not many of us think about, learn about, or get to express our opinions about. With the Think Tank: Free Speech Summit we have an incredible opportunity to change this.

This incredible full day summit presented by the Office of the Vice President of Diversity, a group that promotes creating a community at CSU where all members feel welcomed, valued, and affirmed, you have the opportunity to dig deep into the impacts of hate speeches, how they support impacted students and so much more.
