The Problem

Speech and debate is one of the most valuable high school activities a student can get involved in. Yet, the activity is far from equal. Well-funded teams can set their students up for success with extensive resources, top notch coaching, and subsidized travel to tournaments everywhere. Millions of students are denied these valuable opportunities solely because of the wealth of their family, community, and school.

The Solution

Equality in Forensics has a mission of making speech and debate accessible to high school students across the country. We accomplish this through substantive, impactful activism.
