Free Speech Week is a yearly event, celebrated across the United States. It is non-partisan and non-ideological – the goal is to raise public awareness of the importance of free speech in a democratic society.

So why is this important to the people at Comrex? To begin with, we’re an American company, and manufacture all of our products in the United States. We also consider ourselves to be in the business of supporting free speech. Our primary mission at Comrex is to create equipment that makes it easy for broadcasters to tell their stories. Regardless of the message, we believe it’s vitally important that people be able to share their voice in the highest possible quality. While we discourage hate speech, and our organization abstains from political engagement, we work every day to help our customers get their thoughts and beliefs on the air.

How can you get involved? Free Speech Week lasts from Oct. 17th to Oct. 23rd, but you can do these things any time!

  • Learn about free speech, what it means, and what issues are currently at stake. Here are some great resources from the ACLU to get you started.
  • Exercise your right to free speech! Write a letter to an editor, attend a protest, or compose a rant on Facebook.
  • Look up your local community media station (if you’re not already intimately acquainted with their work), and find out what they’re doing. Watch some of their programming. Donate or volunteer, if you’re inclined!

We make it possible for broadcasters to share their message in the highest possible quality. Have a great message, but still deciding how to share it? Let’s talk. Email us at info@comrex.com, or give us a call at +1 (978) 784-1776.
