Inherent to YAF’s commitment to free speech on campus is the ability to support students with legal action. This page provides capsule summaries of YAF’s ongoing legal efforts to protect and promote free speech across the country.
College and high school administrators bring their own biases to their work. Administrators also fear the controversy that sometimes follows conservative speech on campus and frequently cater to a tiny minority of highly vocal, sensationalized students. With such short-sighted vision, administrators all too often take actions that clearly violate the First Amendment.
In stark contrast, YAF is committed to preserving the free marketplace of ideas that many schools have abandoned. Free speech is one of our nation’s most cherished liberties, and YAF will always lead the good and necessary fight to safeguard our Freedom by defending the rights of young conservatives to express themselves fearlessly.
