Kutztown University of Pennsylvania permitted student groups to chalk messages on campus sidewalks. But when the Students for Life group chalked this and similar messages, the university scrubbed them off.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) sent the university a letter pointing out that their chalking policy was unconstitutional, since it allowed chalking of only university approved messages.
ADF politely suggested the university rethink their policy in order to avoid a lawsuit.
Kutztown University officials wisely revised their policy to allow freedom of chalk speech on campus sidewalks.
ADF is representing or has represented Students for Life chapters in five recent legal matters across the country, including a case at Fresno State University in California that also involves the censorship of chalked pro-life messages on sidewalks.
