FIRE is pleased to announce the long-anticipated launch of the Campus Freedom Network (CFN) website. The CFN is a loose affiliation of students and faculty interested in the defense of First Amendment freedoms at their colleges and universities. The new website will have an exclusive login and feature an unprecedented level of interactivity. CFN members will be able to access exclusive CFN content; comment on FIRE’s posts to our blog, The Torch; promote CFN-related events on their campuses; and connect with faculty and students across the country similarly engaged in working to ensure individual rights are protected on campus.
Interested students and faculty should inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
