The SAPIENT Being’s primary goal is to return free speech to college campuses (and high schools too) by creating intellectual humility and opportunities for open dialogue that ensure there is a decorum of civil discourse and cooperation when this happens.
The Society Advancing Personal Intelligence & Enlightenment Now Together (SAPIENT) Being is an educational non-profit that is now creating club, chapter and alliance campus organizations at America’s high schools, 2 year community colleges and 4 year university campuses.
It’s a new freedom of speech activist organization rooted in the 21st century that is focused on a world view with a humanistic approach to debating and addressing our most pressing issues starting with the suppression and/or restriction of our First Amendment rights and the viewpoint orthodoxy that restricts the marketplace of ideas.
Acting as a leader, consensus builder and nexus for public policy debates on and off campus, SAPIENT BEING organizations and members can rise above divisive ideologies, and learn, connect and advance their sapient skillsets for the betterment of America, their schools and themselves—and reach a higher state of being in the process.
The SAPIENT BEING is an intellectual habitat, debating venue, and leadership platform for those students who might not be the right fit for other organizations and see themselves belonging elsewhere. They now have another place to thrive and prosper and be rewarded with sapience.
Looking for an organization that welcomes with open minds, arms and hearts the believers and practitioners from all ideologies, faiths and diverse backgrounds with the common goal of making free speech again on campus as well as ensuring and fighting for First Amendment Rights? If the answer is still YES, learn more and become a member--start a chapter--or donate to our cause.
The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible and achieve it, generation after generation.

Long Term Goal
Society Advancing Personal Intelligence
and Enlightenment Now Together
The SAPIENT Being is a great venue for independent minded students who want to hear both sides of an issue, from any topic, without intimidation. It's also a perfect opportunity for liberal and conservative leaning students to come together and openly debate the hottest and most contentious issues facing America and the world today. We accomplish this by following the highest standards of civil discourse and debating each other’s ideas, premises, and principles without attacking their character with malice and prejudice.
