Appeals Court to Hear Case of Student Who Was Blocked From Sharing the Gospel at Georgia Gwinnett College

Chike Uzuegbunam

The Alliance Defending Freedom will go before the US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday to defend a former college student who was silenced while trying to share the gospel with fellow students at Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC).

School administrators repeatedly silenced student Chike Uzuegbunam in 2016 when he tried to pass out Christian literature on campus and talk to students about his faith.

The school stopped him and said he was violating their speech zone policy which required him to ask three days in advance for permission to speak, limiting him to two small speech zones on campus.

Uzuegbunam agreed to these conditions but he was still prevented from sharing his faith because they saw it as “disorderly conduct”—defined as any expression “which disturbs the peace and/or comfort of person(s).”

ADF attorneys filed a lawsuit to challenge the college’s speech policies, which they argue violated Uzuegbunam’s First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of religion.
