Club members and friends will focus their attention on local politics at their upcoming meeting on Wednesday, May 17th in Clubhouse 3, Room 2 at 1:00 p.m. In recent weeks, students, faculty, and trustees from UC Berkeley to a community college in Orange County have been involved in ongoing – oftentimes bitter – controversies relating to politics and free speech on their campuses. The confrontation spilled over into the local public arena when a student at Orange Coast College published a secretly recorded tape of a professor making remarks about President Trump.
Orange Coast Community College Board of Trustees member Jim Moreno will share his perspective on the relevant issues as well as the trustees’ experiences in handling this debate. Accompanying Mr. Moreno in addressing Club members will be the Vice President of the Young Democrats of Orange County, Luis Aleman, who is also a student at Orange Coast College.
