Marin Republican Women Federated

Luncheon Meeting, Wednesday, March 28th

11:30 am – 1:00 pm

The Club Restaurant, McInnis Park, 350 Smith Ranch Rd, San Rafael

Speaker: Naweed Tahmas, Vice President, UC Berkeley College Republicans

Topic: UC Berkeley’s Free Speech Problem: Can It Reclaim the Free Speech Mantle?

Naweed Tahmas

Naweed Tahmas is a senior at the University of California, Berkeley, and serves as the Vice President of the UC Berkeley College Republicans.  Recent planned events with Ann Coulter and Ben Shapiro, spearheaded by Naweed, gained international attention when the University imposed a series of unconstitutional restrictions essentially shutting them down after much publicized riots broke out following an earlier Berkeley College Republican event.  

Naweed reached out to powerhouse attorney and RNC committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon and took the university to court. This lawsuit—intended to reinstate the free speech rights of all students at UC Berkeley— has now been backed by U.S Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Justice Department. The aggressive legal challenge to the university behemoth sent campus administrators into full retreat. The war is far from over, but conservatives are winning the fight.  

As a conservative student in Berkeley, Naweed faces routine attacks and threats for holding conservative viewpoints at the most liberal university in the nation.  

Naweed has been featured by numerous media outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, TIME, NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox. He also currently serves as the Bay Area Chair for the California College Republicans and helps other conservative students from around the nation fight for their First Amendment rights on their university campuses.
