FIRE's CFN Conference a Huge Success
Last weekend, FIRE wrapped up our third annual Campus Freedom Network Conference. Approximately fifty students from across the country congregated at Bryn Mawr College outside of Philadelphia to hear from FIRE's staff and some of the leading advocates for free speech on campus. Dozens of students and community members tuned in on the CFN website and on the CFN's Ustream channel and students and staff engaged in vigorous discussion not only at the conference, but also on Twitter. FIRE looks forward to working with these bright and engaged students to advance liberty on their campuses throughout their higher education careers.
