University facilitates directives chalk on the sidewalk messages

KUTZTOWN, Pa. Pennsylvania university has relaxed rules about messages written in chalk on the sidewalks after protests by an anti-abortion group.

In March, a chapter of Students for Life of America uses chalk to write anti-abortion messages on Berks County, Kutztown University, but the messages were washed away, two days in a row.

The alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative non-profit legal organization, then accused the school of censorship, saying other groups were allowed to leave chalk messages.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the university on Monday, called it “a misunderstanding” and said chalking guidelines revised to “better reflect our support of free speech.”

The revised guidelines were demolished a section private messages “educational or informational nature” and block that may interfere “with the process of the university.”
