FIRE (The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression)

Since its founding more than two decades ago as the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, FIRE has become the nation’s leading defender of fundamental rights on college campuses through a unique mix of programming, including student and faculty outreach, public education campaigns, individual case advocacy, and policy reform efforts. In 2022, FIRE changed its name to the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression and announced an expansion initiative into off-campus free speech advocacy and legal defense. With us this morning to talk more about FIRE and the work they are doing to protect Freedom of Expression is Nico Perrino, the Executive Vice President of the organization. 7/16/23
