Events

Free the Facts is touring the country, visiting colleges and universities with a team of policy and communication experts to bring students the facts. Each tour focuses on a specific public policy problem that is widely debated, but frequently misunderstood.

What to expect

What can I expect if I invite you to my campus?
Our events are 60 minutes in length. The first 20 minutes is a presentation that provides enough information for a discussion. The other 40 minutes is a Q&A-style, student-directed conversation.

What else can attendees expect?
They will be able to talk with experts and form their own opinions, access interactive tools, craft their own solutions, and apply for our leadership programs and competitions.  Also, we give out food, awesome door prizes. And swag.

Have you done a lot of these events?
We have met with over 1,000 students across the country. We are happy to connect you with some of the past organizers from the campuses and organizations below to get their perspective

What’s the topic for your 2017/18 college tour?
Social Security.

Free the Facts: 2017-2018 Academic Year

Our tour topic for the 2017-2018 Academic Year is Social Security. Over 62 million Americans receive Social Security. It is the major source of income for most of the elderly, and in the coming decades, it’s up against some serious challenges. The task of fixing the program’s problems is poised to fall on Americans ages 18 to 35. The earlier we start, the more options you have.
