Host an Event on Campus

Freedom Day is not just celebrated in Philadelphia! In 2016, satellite events were held on college campuses across the country - including Temple, MIT, Brown, Yale, and Georgetown. These events included watch parties, discussions, and debates. This year, we are partnering with several organizations, including Students for Liberty and Heterodox Academy, to distribute Freedom Day resources to their vast networks of students and professors.

Discussion and debate guides are available for download on our website. Please check back shortly for downloadable guides from our partners.

All preregistered Freedom Day events will be mapped on our website so we can see how far this year's celebration reaches! Below are several ways you can participate.

Host a Freedom Day Debate or Discussion

Contribute to the growth of Freedom Day by hosting an on-campus debate or discussion. Feature student leaders, professors, administrators, guest speakers, or whomever you think offers a unique insight on the issues.  The National Constitution Center will provide debate and discussion guides to help facilitate your dialogue.

Host a Freedom Day Watch Party

Feel like you’re part of the action in Philadelphia by getting your on-campus group together to host a Freedom Day livestream watch party. Listen to the dynamic speakers on stage at the National Constitution Center in real time, and participate through an interactive online system. View our discussion and debate guides to enhance your party’s experience with some lively dialogue before or after the main event!
