Alliance Defending Freedom and Young America’s Foundation sent a letter to the University of Alabama on behalf of a student group asking the school to review and correct its Facilities and Grounds Use Policy so that it no longer bans speech without a permit that isn’t “casual” or related to recent national news events in the minds of university administrators.
The letter challenged Alabama officials to agree to revise their policy to be at least as good as rival University of Tennessee, which has no such ban, prior to a football match-up between the two schools.
In June, 2019, the Governor signed into law legislation that defines the outdoor areas of campus as public forums for the purpose of expression and gives the University until January 2020 to revise its policies.
