FIRE’s Widgets: Free, Simple, and Effective
Here's another reminder about FIRE widgets. They are an easy way to help broadcast FIRE's speech code efforts and can be done right from your own personal website or Facebook account. Supporters can choose between FIRE's Spotlight widget—linking to the ratings of nearly 400 colleges and universities—and FIRE's Speech Code of the Month widget. Of course, you don't have to choose between them if you want to display more than one—and believe us, these widgets make a difference.
Visit the widget page on the Campus Freedom Network website to learn how to download our widgets to your website and help get the word out about speech codes today.
