Announcing FIRE Student Network’s 2019 Summer Conference

April 22, 2019

FIRE is thrilled to announce the 12th annual FIRE Student Network Summer Conference will take place July 19–21 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

FIRE’s yearly conference is a weekend-long, intensive gathering designed to teach students about their rights and to provide them the necessary tools to assert and defend them on campus. Our conference brings together college students from around the country and across the ideological spectrum who share a passion for free speech and due process.

In addition to our keynote speakers, who will be announced shortly, the 2019 FSN conference will feature dynamic and thought-provoking workshops led by FIRE staff. Working directly with attendees, FIRE staffers will educate students about the First Amendment, and provide practical lessons about how to successfully stand up for their free speech rights on campus.

The event is free to attend and open to current students at U.S. colleges and universities, including graduate students and incoming freshmen. Housing and meals will be provided, and a travel reimbursement for up to $300 per student will be available to help students travel to and from Philadelphia.

We hope to see you in Philadelphia this summer!
