Following more than 1,300 requests from students on campuses across the country, Young America’s Foundation is excited to announce the six schools set to host Ben Shapiro through Young America’s Foundation’s exclusive Fred Allen Lecture Series during the fall semester:

Thursday, October 4: University of Southern California—Los Angeles, CA

Monday, October 8: University at Buffalo—Buffalo, NY

Wednesday, October 10: University of Memphis—Memphis, TN

Monday, November 12: University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee—Milwaukee, WI

“Young America’s Foundation looks forward to continuing our work with Ben Shapiro to deliver conservative ideas and create an opportunity for the free and open exchange of ideas to flourish on college campuses where intellectual diversity is in dangerously short supply,” said Young America’s Foundation Spokesman Spencer Brown. “As we have for years and on more than 35 campuses, YAF and Ben Shapiro provide a rare opportunity for students to hear an articulation of conservative ideas and challenge them in an open Q&A session. We hope university administrators will welcome the intellectual diversity provided by Ben Shapiro and Young America’s Foundation. If they don’t, YAF stands ready to expose free speech violations and ensure conservative students’ rights are protected.”

At each stop on the fall segment of YAF’s Fred Allen Lecture Series featuring Ben Shapiro, students will be exposed to the conservative ideas they rarely—if ever—hear. Select events will be streamed via, reaching thousands more around the country with Shapiro’s trademark ‘facts not feelings’ message. Be sure to follow @YAF and @BenShapiro on Twitter, along with #YAFonCampus to keep up with the latest on YAF’s nationwide lecture events.

Ben Shapiro will speak on an additional six campuses through Young America’s Foundation during the spring semester—proposals to host Shapiro in the spring are due by November 15, 2018. More information on how to submit a request can be found at
