#SpeechMatters 2023 conference highlights
On March 23, 2023, the UC National Center for Free Speech and Civil Engagement held its fifth annual #SpeechMatters conference. This year’s theme was: “Fighting for Our Democratic Freedoms.”
From state legislation aimed at censoring curriculum to controversial Supreme Court decisions, the conference drew upon insights from higher education, politics, media and civil society leaders to explore how campuses nationwide can protect democratic freedoms, improve our democracy and ensure that everyone’s voice is heard.
