WWU’s SPJ Chapter Hosts First Amendment Free Food Festival

Last month I had the privilege to attend the First Amendment Free Food Festival, hosted by the student SPJ chapter of Western Washington University. The event was held mid-day on Thurs., May 12 in a common area known, ironically, as Red Square. Here SPJ volunteers passed out free pizza to students who were willing to give up their First Amendment Rights to enter the restricted zone. More than 100 students actively handed over the rights, while at least a dozen others refused, walking off without pizza.
