We are proud to announce that the “Weekend Interview” in the November 16 issue of The Wall Street Journal features Unlearning Liberty author President Greg Lukianoff, highlighting his career of fighting for free speech on campus. From the piece on Greg:

His ethnically Irish, British-born mother moved to America during the 1960s British-nanny fad, while his Russian father came from Yugoslavia to study at the University of Wisconsin. Russian history, Mr. Lukianoff says, “taught me about the worst things that can happen with good intentions.”
