Announcing FIRE’s 2018 Summer Conference

By May 3, 2018

FIRE is thrilled to announce our 11th FIRE Student Network Summer Conference. It will take place this year from July 20–22, in Philadelphia.

FIRE’s yearly conference is a weekend-long, intensive workshop designed to teach students about their rights on campus — and provide the tools to assert and defend them. 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 two keynote speakers, whom we will announce soon, the 2018 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 rights on campus.

The conference will open with a reception on Friday and close with lunch on Sunday. 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.

For more information, visit thefire.org/conference. Space is limited and spots fill up quickly, so apply today! Applications are due Friday, June 15.

We hope to see you in Philadelphia this summer!
