Tim Murphy’s studies at the College of William and Mary focused on the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, from which he developed a strong appreciation for the importance of First Amendment rights in making social change. He spent four years at the Washington, D.C.-based Marijuana Policy Project, which successfully legalized cannabis in Colorado by ballot initiative. Tim joined FIRE in 2017 and manages FIRE’s marketing efforts. He is expanding FIRE’s ability to recruit and engage free speech supporters. When not encouraging people to become First Amendment advocates, he is busy getting embarrassed on the tennis court or tracking down the spiciest fried chicken sandwich he can find in D.C.
