    Ratio Christi Chapter Sues Kennesaw State Univ. for Sending Pro-life Display to Tiny 'Speech Zone'

    PRESS RELEASE
    Contact: ADF Media Relations, 480-444–0020, www.adfmedia.org/home/connect

    INDIAN TRAIL, N.C., Feb. 22, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance's chapter at Kennesaw State University filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday (February 20, 2018) to challenge policies that officials used to relegate its pro-life display to a "speech zone" that makes up less than 0.08 percent of the 405-acre campus.

    "Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas, where all ideas are welcome, not just those that university bureaucrats consider acceptable," said Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Travis Barham, one of the attorneys representing Ratio Christi. "Kennesaw State allows officials to quarantine any student speech they deem 'controversial'—including a pro-life display—to a tiny, difficult-to-access part of campus. But the First Amendment prohibits universities from restricting where students can speak."
