FIRE’s first-ever FIRE Spring Regional Workshop, scheduled to take place at Yale University on Saturday, March 21, is just around the corner!
This special one-day event will offer students a crash course on their right to free speech. Attendees will learn about the history of free speech in higher education and the contemporary struggle against speech codes, and will work with FIRE staff to develop winning strategies for protecting freedom of expression on campus and ensuring that no student is silenced.
The deadline to apply is this Friday, March 14. Space is limited, so reserve your spot as soon as possible!
Attendees will be treated to three meals throughout the day and will have the chance to kick back with staff and other participants at the post-workshop social.
If you have been the victim of administrative censorship or overbearing bureaucracy and you’re looking for a way to fight back, here’s your chance to learn how. Apply to attend today!
