Today, FIRE staffers Jaclyn Hall and Joanna Brenner are representing FIRE at the Campus Progress National Conference, an annual gathering of progressive students from around the country for the discussion of various national issues. As the Campus Progress attendees learn how to make an impact in today’s important debates, Jaclyn and Joanna will be there to spread FIRE’s nonpartisan message of free speech and liberty, and to discuss the ways FIRE works with students to ensure that their campuses protect open discourse. We’re proud to be a full sponsor of this year’s Campus Progress conference.
Campus Progress is one of the many national and regional conferences FIRE attends during the year. Our presence at conferences like Campus Progress, CPAC, and the like brings with it the benefit of being able to interact with students of all backgrounds and viewpoints. If you’re at the conference, please stop by FIRE’s table and say hello! For those following the conference remotely (like me), you can check in on the day’s events via twitter using the hashtag #CPNC11 and by following FIRE and Campus Progress respectively at @TheFIREorg and @CampusProgress.
