FIRE’s Speech Code Widgets
May 14, 2008

FIRE friends are reminded that FIRE's speech code widgets are a great way to inform your readers about the speech policies at your favorite university—and a great way to get a free FIRE t-shirt. The speech code widget features FIRE's iconic traffic light graphic indicating a Spotlight rating of red, yellow, or green. The colored lights represent the extent to which the school's policies protect freedom of speech.
To add the widget for your school to your website, here's all you need to do:
- Visit thefire.org/spotlight and select your school by state, region, or just by typing it into the search box.
- When your school's page comes up, look on the right sidebar to see the widget for that particular school. Below it is a box with some text in it—select it all and copy it to the clipboard.
- Go to your blog or website, and paste in the text wherever you want the widget to appear (it's made for a sidebar, but should work anywhere).
- Send us a link to your site with the widget posted on it and your mailing address.
Then we'll send you a free FIRE t-shirt!
