If you think there’s a risk you’ll be penalised for exercising your legal right to free speech, whether it’s in the workplace or the public square, you need the protection of the Free Speech Union. How will we protect you?

  • If you find yourself being targeted by a digital outrage mob on social media for having exercised your legal right to free speech, we will mobilise an army of supporters.
  • If a petition is launched calling for you to be fired when you’ve done nothing wrong other than exercise your legal right to free speech, we’ll organise a counter-petition.
  • If you’re no-platformed by a university—a feminist professor who challenges trans orthodoxy, for instance—we’ll encourage you to go to law and organise a crowdfunding campaign to pay your costs.
  • If newspaper columnists and broadcasting pundits start attacking you for dissenting from orthodox views and opinions, we’ll get our allies in the media to come to your defence.
  • If you’re punished by your employer because you’ve exercised your lawful right to free speech, we’ll do our best to provide you with legal assistance.

Other benefits of membership include:

  • Invitations to “speakeasies” (social events in pubs).
  • Discounted tickets to FSU debates.
  • A monthly newsletter

We’re also in discussions with lawyers and insurance experts about setting up a fully-underwritten insurance scheme that will provide members with access to specialist lawyers and will completely cover any costs associated with legal action—unlike most other no win, no fee arrangements. For more details, see our Legal section.

We accept payments by credit or debit card, PayPal and direct debit. For credit/debit card and PayPal, we can accept payment in any currency.
