FIRE Ember Club

“We support FIRE because college is a time for young people to explore their ideas and speak their minds in a safe, welcoming, and open environment. As parents, it’s important that our daughter can express herself without fear of punishment or retaliation from the university and that her First Amendment rights are protected. ‑ Bob and Sandy Gelfond, FIRE Advocates
