Renowned Panel of Experts to Discuss "Free Speech on Campus: Are There Limits?" at Jewish Cleveland Event

College campuses across the United States are facing a national debate: How far is too far when it comes to free speech? Join the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to discuss “Free Speech on Campus: Are There Limits?” at the 70th Annual Meeting of the Community Relations Committee (CRC) and Sidney Z. Vincent Memorial Lecture. The event is free and open to the public on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 pm at The Temple-Tifereth Israel (26000 Shaker Blvd, Beachwood).

“What is said on a college campus matters,” said Bradley J. Schlang, CRC Chair. “We’ve seen instances where free speech is being tested on campuses, affecting both the Jewish community and other minority populations. We want to talk about it.”

Renowned educators and national experts in the field of free speech come together as panelists to debate the limits of free speech and civil discourse on college campuses. Panelists include:

  • Mark Yudof, President Emeritus, University of California and Professor of Law Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley
  • Blake Morant, Dean and Robert Kramer Research Professor of Law, The George Washington University Law School
  • Susan Kruth, Program Officer, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
  • Kevin S. Adelstein, Publisher & CEO at the Cleveland Jewish News (moderator)

In addition to the panel discussion, the CRC will share how it builds relationships across diverse communities and helps mobilize our community into action.
