As Claire posted last week, this month FIRE is giving away new T-shirts and mugs to anyone who takes part in our Give Half for Liberty Campaign. Participating is the perfect way to show support for your school while also encouraging administrators to protect student rights on campus, and giving to the campaign is easy! Simply donate half the amount you usually would to any college or university and send the remaining half to FIRE. We'll write to that school's administration, letting them know that illiberal policies are costing them donor support and explaining how the school's policies can be revised so they are in line with the Constitution.
With a donation of $50 or more, we will also include our handbook for administrators, Correcting Common Mistakes in Campus Speech Policies.
While this campaign is the newest addition to our fundraising repertoire, it has already proved successful both in raising funds for FIRE and in engaging school administrators. Princeton President Shirley Tilghman contacted us in response to our notification that Princeton had been affected by the campaign, and we are confident that the more Torch readers participate, the more schools we will be hearing from this summer. Please help us make a difference on your campus by Giving Half for Liberty today.
Also, if you start your weekend off by showing your support for FIRE, a T-shirt or mug will arrive at your home early next week! Just let us know which giveaway you prefer and your T-shirt size, if applicable.
