If you haven’t already heard, on October 23rd FIRE is celebrating its 15th anniversary! In honor of this milestone occasion, FIRE will be hosting a gala dinner in New York at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where friends, supporters, staff, and the students and professors FIRE helps will gather together to celebrate all that FIRE has accomplished since it was founded in 1999. FIRE anniversaries are only celebrated once every five years, so Unlearning Liberty fans should take advantage of this special opportunity to join in the festivities!

Gala-goers will treated to two great speakers; America’s most famous First Amendment attorney, Floyd Abrams, and world renowned author, psychologist, and cognitive scientist, Steven Pinker. Lawrence H. Summers, former Secretary of the Treasury and President Emeritus of Harvard University, will serve as the honorary dinner chairman. Many other distinguished leaders in their fields will also serve as part of the dinner’s Honorary Host Committee. Furthermore, FIRE President and Unlearning Liberty author Greg Lukianoff will act as MC for the evening.

Tickets can be purchased here. We hope to see you in New York on October 23rd!
