CX PF LD – Topics Topics Topics!

CX : 2015-2016

Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially curtail its domestic surveillance.

PF: September-October 2015 (Racial Justice topic area)

Resolved: The United States Federal Government ought to pay reparations to African Americans.

LD: September-October 2015

Resolved: Adolescents ought to have the right to make autonomous medical choices.

I admit some confusion here, since the NSDA/NFL has had a Novice LD topic posted for for a while:

Resolved: Civil disobedience in a democracy is morally justified.

In my state there aren’t any September tournaments, and October is Novice tournaments only, so it’ll mean checking tournament invitations to see which one they’re using.

Topics can be found at the NSDA/NFL:
