This is a brief overview of the society, its aims and objectives, and the types of activities/events you plan to host.

From the Prevent duty to no-platforming, student discussions are under threat on campuses in the UK. We aim to raise awareness of increasing restrictions on the free speech of students and academics, and explore how the free speech debate is being utilised to achieve political goals. We want to equip students with the ability to debate and challenge issues that impact their academic experience, and take those skills into the world outside of campus.
We will host events with high profile journalists, academics and activists with the aim of training students to recognise and resist censorship.
