Campus Groups

PATRIOT Act protests; Supreme Court watch parties; speak-outs; debates; lobbying workshops; drag show fundraisers — this is only a handful of events happening on Ohio campuses, thanks to campus organizations. Check out our action ideas for campus activists, request an ACLU speaker for your event, or visit our civil liberties calendar for days to commemorate.
