CFN Awarded Templeton Freedom Award in 2009
Since FIRE established the Campus Freedom Network (CFN) in 2006, we have worked tirelessly to educate students about their rights and to empower them to defend those rights on campus. We've reported on the CFN's great successes in 2009, including hosting dozens of speeches on campuses across the country, recruiting well over a thousand new students, and helping students reform their campuses for liberty. Because of the CFN's hard work, the Atlas Economic Research Foundation awarded the CFN a 2009 Templeton Freedom Award for Student Outreach. Check out pictures from the Atlas Freedom Conference and Dinner here.
