In October, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) celebrated its 10th anniversary with a gala dinner in New York.  The evening featured several inspiring speeches and a thoughtful reflection on the state of liberty by keynote speaker Eugene Volokh of the University of California-Los Angeles law school.  During the event, FIRE also premiered its new short film, Reflecting on 10 Years of FIRE.
"Marking time by decades makes a certain amount of sense, as a decade is a manageable chunk of time," FIRE co-founder and chairman Harvey Silverglate said.  "FIRE has done about 20 years worth of work and of good since its founding in 1999.  At the anniversary meeting and dinner, we are planning to do 30 years worth in FIRE's second decade."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports FIRE, which defends student and faculty rights at America's colleges and universities.  In its first decade, FIRE has won 159 public victories for liberty at 120 colleges and universities, benefiting more than 2.6 million students.
