A nonprofit civil liberties group that promotes freedom of speech in schools recently released an ad campaign targeting Emerson College for suspending the conservative student group who handed out controversial “China kinda sus” stickers late last year.
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education’s (FIRE) ad campaign was created to support Emerson College’s Turning Point USA (TPUSA) chapter, which said it sought to criticize the Chinese government and its alleged human rights abuses through its stickers, according to National Review.
