FIRE Announces Spring 2014 Webinar Series

February 12, 2014

The FIRE Student Network is pleased to announce its Spring 2014 Webinar Series. Students, faculty, and FIRE supporters are invited to join FIRE for free, live webinars. Hear from and interact with FIRE staff from your computer, iPad, or smartphone. Just register for the webinar and download the GoToWebinar app. Webinars are FREE, and all participants will be sent a FREE pair of FIRE sunglasses!

FIRE’s first webinar of the spring is a must-attend for any student journalist. All too often, FIRE sees student newspapers censored, and that censorship comes in many different forms!
