Join us in asking God for victory in this important case
Tomorrow is a big day. For the first time, a case from the ADF Center for Academic Freedom is before the United States Supreme Court.
If you follow the news, you know how hostile college campuses have become toward Christian and conservative students.
Our client, Chike Uzuegbunam, was simply exercising his free speech—as he often saw other students do in public areas of campus.
He was sharing his faith with fellow students and handing out Christian pamphlets when college officials stopped him and silenced him. Twice. The second time, campus police even threatened discipline if he did not stop speaking.
This is unacceptable. And it intimidated another student, Joseph Bradford, into silence.
Government officials—such as college administrators and campus police—have no business censoring a student’s speech. College campuses are free speech zones. Yet, two courts gave the college a free pass for violating these students’ rights because the college later changed its policies and Chike graduated.
The stakes are high, John.
Chike and Joseph deserve justice. And we must ensure victims have a remedy in court when government officials trample someone’s constitutional rights. Whether it’s Chike’s rights, Joseph’s rights, your rights, or anyone else’s. Freedom must be protected.
Please pray for Chike and Joseph. Pray for me as I argue the case tomorrow and for the ADF team that will assist me. Pray for the Supreme Court justices who will hear the case. And most of all, please pray for our nation that our God-given freedoms will be protected at all times.
