FAIR News: Happy Two-Year Anniversary!
Dear Friends of FAIR,
It has been two years since FAIR’s inception, and we are so humbled by the progress we have made and support the pro-human movement has garnered. With over 80 chapters nationwide made up of passionate, hard-working volunteer chapter leaders and members, FAIR continues to grow.
FAIR’s legal team has received over 500 Incident and Survey reports through FAIR Transparency, sent over 100 letters to institutions across the country, and supported nine lawsuits in support of civil rights and liberties for all Americans. Our network of FAIR-aligned attorneys has grown to more than 100 members.
FAIR in Education has produced dozens of curricular and assessment resources, delivered trainings to hundreds of teachers, administrators, parents, and school board members, consulted with a range of educational stakeholders, and hosted over 25 educational sessions for teachers, schools, and parents.
FAIR in the Arts has hosted 10 community meetups and successfully connected pro-human artists of various disciplines not just across America, but across the globe.
FAIR in Medicine has hosted over 20 webinars about pressing issues to the medical community, and written consequential open letters advancing the highest ethical standards in medical practice.
FAIR’s Media production team has produced more than 261 inspirational and educational videos that are available to the public on FAIR’s YouTube channel, which has nearly 10,000 subscribers.
FAIR’s Substack, with over 35,000 subscribers, has grown to become a leading source for nuanced and diverse perspectives, captivating personal narratives, and other essays connected to FAIR’s pro-human mission. Our editorial team has worked with pro-human authors to publish nearly 100 articles.
Thousands will have received diversity training in the pro-human approach by the end of this year.
Thanks to you all, we have raised over 7.5 million dollars to further FAIR’s mission of promoting fairness, understanding, and humanity. We are eager to continue our work, and could not do it without your continued support.

Calling All Pro-Human Attorneys!
FAIR has established a nationwide network of attorneys and law firms who support FAIR’s mission of advancing civil rights and liberties for all, and promoting a common culture based on fairness, understanding, and humanity.
Schools, non-profit organizations, corporations and government agencies have been implementing policies that directly violate the Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights of students, parents and employees. FAIR Legal Network attorneys can help by providing legal information and advice to affected individuals and, in appropriate circumstances, by seeking legal redress in the courts on their behalf.

‘Sincere American Writing’
FAIR, is one of the most positive groups and because of you all I feel much better about the state of affairs in the U.S, especially in regards to race relations. We as a society are moving forward towards the goals of Dr. King when he gave us his "I have a Dream" speech and away from the ideology of the the Critical Race Theorists who see the world is nothing more as endless power struggles and demonizing "whiteness".
Congrats on all of your success so far! Can't wait to see much more high quality work in 2023!
