“CPAC is a tremendous platform for me to bring attention to the continuing issue of attacks on conservative speakers and programs on campuses across the country,” said Strobl. “We see time and again that free speech is restricted by university administrators. Often, administrators encourage or do nothing to prevent violent protesters and hecklers who effectively veto conservative speech. That is not free speech.”
He will speak at a session titled “How College Campuses are Turning into Reeducation Camps” at 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, February 22, 2018. The session will be held in the Potomac Ballroom, and will be livestreamed on CPAC and various social media outlets.
