Cleveland, OH 44115

What is the greatest threat to free speech at U.S. universities today? Who is trying to block students from organizing around Palestine on American campuses? How are they doing this? Can professors have their academic freedom violated if they research Palestine? Do people chose silence about Palestinian rights because they fear they may be accused of anti-semitism?

CCR Bertha Justice Fellow Omar Shakir will discuss CCR and Palestine Legal's report, The Palestine Exception to Free Speech: A Movement Under Attack in the U.S. Come learn about the systematic campaign against scholarship and student activism that focuses on Palestinian rights.
