An article in Virginia Tech's Collegiate Times—Buchanan Brings the Immigration Debate on Campus—highlights the vigorous discussion that occurred during the evening lecture, much of it surrounding the flier that organizer and former Luce Institute intern, Lauren McCue, used to publicize the event.
Lauren said she had "no regrets about the flier because I'm exercising my first amendment right." Asked about the flier during Q&A, Bay Buchanan responded, "Let's all be real grown ups and accept that the country needs vibrant debates." Congratulations to Lauren for bringing a vibrant debate to her campus!
Attendees at our recent Western Women's Summit in Santa Barbara CA, heard of the experiences on liberal campuses of these four young women: Andrea Carlson (University of Illinois, Springfield), Lisa Ebiner Gavit (USC), Viktoriya Mukha (UC-Berkeley), and Nicole Poole (Valdosta State University). We invite you to hear them as well:
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life and one of CBLPI's CWN speakers last year, will be honored for her pro-life work at this year's annual Great Defender of Life dinner. "More young leaders are emerging," writes National Review, to keep the pro-life movement "strong and vibrant. Thanks to women like Kristan Hawkins ... and Lila Rose of Live Action [and a CBLPI campus speaker], young women have role models who aren't afraid to speak out for those who have no voice."
Kudos to both Kristan and Lila, and congratulations to Kristan!
