Case Overview

FIRE Victory closed

In October 2023, FIRE learned of a Cornell Student Assembly policy requiring student organizations to disclose the names of all members to receive funding. FIRE wrote the Student Assembly on October 2 urging it to abandon this mandatory disclosure policy because it violates groups’ associational freedoms by impacting members' ability to speak freely.  As of March 2024, the Student Assembly had eliminated the requirement.
