Those who have visited the FIRE Student Network website recently may have noticed that it looks a bit different. And by a bit different, I mean very different. That’s because we’ve completely revamped our FIRE Student Network, adding more resources for students interested in learning about their rights and how to protect those rights on campus.
When brainstorming ideas for this website, our main goal was to make sure all students — no matter the message of their activism — have the tools and the knowledge to be able to use their rights on campus. That’s why you’ll find over 20 new resources offering educational and practical tips so you can defend and protect civil liberties on America’s campuses. You can learn how to evaluate your school’s policies and work to improve them, place an op-ed in the student newspaper on campus, and utilize social media to bolster your activism. Need inspiration for what you can do on campus this fall? Look no further.
But don’t take my word for it. Check out the FIRE Student Network’s website for yourself! Explore these brand-new resources and share them with your friends, classmates, and professors. (Follow FSN on Instagram and Twitter while you’re at it!) And remember, the more you know about your rights, the better you’ll be able to ensure that they are being protected on campus. Our new site can help you learn, write, and engage in activism to your fullest potential.
If you’re not already an FSN member, there’s no better time to join than today. Join a community of thousands of students and faculty members who have committed themselves to standing up for free speech and due process on campus. Be the first to hear about threats to these principles on your campus, in your state, and nationally, and what you can do about them. If you need additional resources or advice on how to make an impact at your school, FSN staff is here to help. We’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
