FIRE’s CFN Conference Live Stream

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is hosting its annual Campus Freedom Network (CFN) conference this week, from July 14th thru July 17th.

As a current FIRE intern, I will be running the live stream starting Thursday evening at 8:15 p.m. ET, resuming at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, and at 8:45am on Saturday. For those of you who are unable to join us this weekend, you can watch it here:

  • Nick Gillespie, editor in chief of and
  • Robert Corn-Revere, a partner at the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine in Washington, D.C., and a First Amendment expert. Corn-Revere is the lead attorney for former Valdosta State University student Hayden Barnes in Barnes v. Zaccari, a federal civil rights case currently before the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
  • Professor Jan Blits, a professor in the University Honors Faculty at the University of Delaware. In 2009 he received FIRE’s own Prometheus Award for his efforts in ending the University of Delaware’s appalling student indoctrination program.

Here’s the entire live stream schedule:
