FIRE Sponsors Free Speech Debate Blocks at Spring State

2023 mas springstate jsa fireside chats

Thanks to our sponsor, the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), JSA student delegates in Southern California, Northern California, and the Mid-Atlantic States hosted FIREside chats. JSAers had open discussions on freedom of speech issues impacting our democracy. Examples of the FIREside chat topics include:

  • Limiting free speech on the internet
  • Removing historic statutes
  • Private companies' right to restrict free speech on their platforms

At Mid-Atlantic Spring State, students heard from FIRE's Program Associate Alden Di Dio. Alden shared more about FIRE's mission and its work to protect freedom of speech, followed by a Q&A. We are grateful to Alden for spending the weekend with our Mid-Atlantic students at their last convention of the school year.
