Berkeley Free Speech Week is almost here, and Team MILO is excited to announce initial details!
MILO is teaming up with our campus sponsor, The Berkeley Patriots, to present Berkeley Free Speech Week from Sunday, September 24th, to Wednesday, September 27th.
MILO described Berkeley Free Speech Week by saying, “We want to bring together liberals, conservatives, and whatever libertarians aren’t too busy mining bitcoin, to celebrate free speech. In the not too distant past, that is what every day at American universities was about. Now free speech is shunned, and in some cases violently shut down. The free speech movement is being reborn at Berkeley, next month, by us.”
We will announce the full list of speakers soon. Here’s a hint — it will include every speaker banned by Berkeley in the last 12 months.
The themes for Berkeley Free Speech Week include:
- Sunday, 9/24 Feminism Awareness Day
- Monday, 9/25 Islam
- Tuesday, 9/26 Silicon Valley
- Wednesday, 9/27 The Higher Education Establishment
On Wednesday, MILO will present the first annual Mario Savio Award for Free Speech to the person who has most courageously fought for free expression in America.
If There is a speaker you’re dying to hear from on these topics, let us know by using #FreeSpeechWeek on social media. Keep an eye on MILO’s Facebook for details as we make them public. An event website will be available soon at www.freespeechweek.com.
