Washington, D.C. – The Institute for Free Speech has named Tom Garrett as its new Chief Communications Officer. Garrett will leverage years of communications experience and expertise to help the Institute for Free Speech achieve its mission of strengthening First Amendment protections. The Institute is the nation’s largest organization dedicated solely to protecting First Amendment political speech rights.

“I’m excited and honored to be a part of the Institute for Free Speech,” Garrett said. “I firmly believe that free political speech guaranteed by the First Amendment is our most important right, and the Institute plays an indispensable role in safeguarding that right around the country. I look forward to assisting this organization and its dedicated staff in fulfilling that mission.”

In his new role, Garrett will work to promote the Institute’s work, as well as informing media and members of the public about the critical importance of the rights enshrined in the First Amendment. Prior to joining the Institute, Garrett most recently served as the Director of Communications for the bipartisan nonprofit Council for a Strong America. There, Garrett led hundreds of successful communications campaigns related to early childhood and other issues.
