"No one is ever paid to start a revolution. In other words, it has always been the small conscious acts of like-minded volunteers who brought on the greatest transformation in thought, politics, and social change. FIRE exists because of the uncommon generosity and remarkable dedication of you-its volunteers."
-Heather Cox, FIRE Co-Director
