Like Justice Louis Brandeis, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) deeply believes that sunlight is the best of disinfectants. Accordingly, FIRE’s senior staff members are happy to discuss our work with members of the media. Please direct all media inquires to:

Media Relations Associate, 215-717-3473

FIRE is happy to provide members of the media with any of our print publications free of charge. This includes a copy of FIRE President Greg Lukianoff’s book, Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate, which supplies the most comprehensive review of the problems on campus relating to FIRE’s mission. 

You can find FIRE’s latest press releases at this link, and subscribe to future FIRE press releases here. Other resources that reporters may find helpful include:
