AJC – “Fighting Antisemitism while Protecting Free Speech on Campus”

May 11, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Understanding how the first amendment applies on campus can be a challenge—especially when dealing with antisemitism, hate speech, or instructors bringing political bias into the classroom. Following the Trump Administration’s executive order on antisemitism, observers and activists have raised even more questions about campus speech, and many loud voices criticized the order as illegitimately limiting anti-Israel rhetoric on campus. Are those critics right? What will be the impact of the order on campus? And, most importantly, how should Jewish student activists fight antisemitism on their campuses?

Join AJC Chief Legal Officer Marc Stern, and AJC U.S. Director for Combating Antisemitism Holly Huffnagle, as they answer these pressing questions about freedom of speech and antisemitic voices on campus. The expert panelists will discuss the important balance between maintaining free expression and fighting hate, explain recent developments in this arena, and take your questions on how students can continue to ensure that open discourse remains at the forefront of Israel advocacy.
