For the past 29 years, the Ford Hall Forum’s Louis P. and Evelyn Smith First Amendment Award has honored individuals or organizations that demonstrate extraordinary commitment to promoting and facilitating the thoughtful exercise of our right to freedom of expression. This spring, the Forum is proud to honor the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), which is dedicated to defending and sustaining individual rights at America’s colleges and universities. Greg Lukianoff, President of FIRE; Steven Pinker, Bestselling author and FIRE Advisory Board member; and Harvey Silverglate, Civil liberties lawyer and FIRE Co-Founder, join moderator Judge Nancy Gertner of the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts to discuss their organization’s work and what freedom of speech means today.
