FIRE Staff on the Road to Two Conferences This Weekend

By February 12, 2015

This weekend, FIRE staff will be heading to the International Students For Liberty Conference (ISFLC) and the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC) to connect with student activists from across the country.

If you are attending MBLGTACC or ISFLC, be sure to stop by our booths and sign up for the FIRE Student Network! We’ll be giving away tons of new FIRE gear, including T-shirts, sunglasses, and tank tops. Shout out to us using the hashtag #theFSN, and see updates from the conference on our Instagram and Vine accounts.

To invite a FIRE speaker to your school or conference, visit FIRE’s Speakers Bureau page or email Molly Nocheck at molly@thefire.org.

We hope to see you soon!
