First Amendment Coalition

Network of anti-political correctness campus activists based in Gainesville, Florida. The group invoked the ’60s New Left manifesto the Port Huron Statement at an April 1994 conference of campus conservatives from around the country, issuing a Cambridge Declaration in opposition to speech codes, multiculturalism, affirmative action, and diversity seminars.

The group has since de-emphasized its associations with right-wing patron Center for the Study of Popular Culture, focusing on First Amendment issues at a Columbia University conference the following fall, where it called for a National Free Speech bill that would cut off federal funds to schools with speech codes.
