Join FIRE's President for Lecture at Stanford Law School
Please join us on Thursday, March 4th, at the Stanford Law Lounge from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a free, open lecture by FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. Greg will return to his alma mater to discuss how students are "Unlearning Liberty" when they see administrators censoring their fellow students. From these acts of censorship, students learn that they should follow administrators' example to seek punishment for protected expression.
The event, hosted by the Federalist Society, will be followed with a reception, drinks, and hors d'oeuvres.
We hope you can make it!
