Christian student in Georgia prohibited from sharing his faith on campus!
Apparently, Georgia Gwinnett College doesn’t believe in freedom of speech and freedom of religion for their students.
Last week, student Chike Uzuegbunam sued the college for prohibiting him from sharing his faith on campus. The College has stated that Uzuegbunam may only share his faith in a tiny, restricted zone of the campus and that he has to ask in advance before he can share his faith.
Students must be free to think and speak as they see fit, not required to conform their thoughts, morality, and speech to what the majority finds acceptable.
Please sign this petition to Georgia Gwinnett College officials asking them to change this policy immediately to allow freedom of speech and religion on campus!
In order to speak on campus, students are required to submit a “free speech zone” request three days prior to sharing their views in two tiny zones on campus. We all know that most persuasive, substantive speech happens naturally as it arises in every-day situations. The college is effectively banning persuasive speech about religion.
It is critical that we fight against this oppressive restriction.
Let’s tell Georgia Gwinnett College that we will not stand for discrimination against Christian students.
The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to protect the rights of minorities to speak when the majority disapproves. No one tries to silence someone they agree with; those whose opinions are contrary to the majority must have the greatest protection.
A college campus, of all places, is supposed to be a marketplace of ideas. Please join us in asking Georgia Gwinnett College to be what it was intended to be: a place of freethinking and deep learning. A university that only permits a certain kind of thought is no university at all.

Allow freedom of speech and religion on campus!
