Help celebrate Free Speech Week

Does your chapter have plans for October? What about Oct. 22 – 28, if we’re going to be specific? Well, maybe you should because it’s the annual celebration of Free Speech Week!

Formerly National Freedom of Speech Week, the event was created in 2005 by the Media Institute and is a non-partisan, non-ideological event that strives to be a unifying celebration of free speech as something everyone can practice and cherish. The Media Institute needs your help to get the word out and celebrate accordingly. They’ve even made a list of some ideas to get you started.

The Institute is encouraging organizations to display the FSW logo on their website, and to let them know of any activities your chapter might plan for the week. They’ll help promote them on the website and through social media. Speaking of social media, connect with them on Twitter.

Don’t forget about letting HQ know about the great event your chapter might hold in connection with Free Speech Week! We’d love to highlight the inspiring things you’re doing around the world.
