The Ember Club

FIRE’s Ember Club is a tight circle of our closest friends and investors who partner with us to defend individual rights on and off campus. Members of the Ember Club play a critical role in advancing our shared mission to preserve First Amendment freedoms. We honor Ember Club members by inviting them into our inner orbit for exclusive benefits and access to FIRE’s programs and leadership. The benefits accumulate.

We need to remind older Americans that freedom of speech is still a value worth fighting for, and we need to teach younger Americans that everything from scientific progress, to artistic expression, to social justice, peace, and living authentic lives requires the staunch protection of freedom of speech for all.
