FIRE-Foundation for Individual Rights in Education
I follow FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, very closely. FIRE is a private foundation dedicated to ensuring the rights of all higher education students, regardless of a student's ideological mindset. They tackle colleges and universities that do away with the right to due process or the right of free speech.
I believe it's important for writers to support such organizations because student writers are often the targets of censorship. Check out their website and learn about the battles being waged in higher education.
