SACRAMENTO – Amid rising tensions on campuses, legislators will introduce a bill to prohibit violence, harassment, intimidation and discrimination from impeding free speech at institutions of higher education at a press conference today.

The press conference will take place in Sacramento at 10:30 a.m. today (Wednesday), March 20. The location will be made available upon RSVP.

“College campuses should be considered a safe space for students, a place where they can expect a healthy exchange of ideas without fear of violence or intimidation,” said Senator Steve Glazer, D-Contra Costa, who is authoring the bill on behalf of the California Legislative Jewish Caucus. “Unfortunately, there has been a growing movement on campuses espousing confrontational actions that threaten the safety of some students. This must stop, and our legislation will make it clear how important it is to protect and defend students’ free speech rights.”
