Quality and Insightful Commentary, where and when we need it most.
Central to our nation’s ethos are the ideals of independence in speech and thought. Our nation thrives when its people have deep conversations, and the platforms that we currently use for this purpose, by forcing someone to articulate their argument in 280 characters or less, reward impulsivity, dishonesty, vitriol, and oversimplification. Much to the detriment of our country, honest and civil exchange of ideas is lost in the process.
Founded in February 2021 at Georgia Tech, The Liberty Jacket provides a more suitable format for students to discuss ideas and come to a better understanding of those who think differently than them. We foster civil and productive debate on campus, give a voice to students who often go unheard, and provide an outlet for students of all political outlooks to articulate their position and engage with differing opinions more honestly. Help us build a better future with deeper conversations.
