LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition has relaunched its website with new resource sections, as well as members-only content and directories of FSC-approved vendors and services.
The trade association said that the updated site also will feature exclusive webinars for FSC members on growing and protecting adult businesses.
Eric Paul Leue, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, said that the group is doing everything possible to help its members to thrive and grow.
“We still have many legislative and regulatory battles ahead of us, but we cannot be content to play defense,” Leue said. “We believe that a more aware, better educated and healthier industry is not only good business, but it makes us stronger and more united as a community.”
For the first time, FreeSpeechCoalition.com will allow visitors to access information about FSC’s varied initiatives, providing detailed resources and further reading to help educate members and the general public.
The new site allows visitors to see at a glance the latest news from the FSC, as well as upcoming calendar items and ways to connect.
The new members’ directory will connect FSC members to special pricing from FSC-approved vendors providing services including legal, accounting, banking, technology, public relations and more.
Members-only webinars on topics from site security and media training to fighting counterfeit products and piracy, featuring experts and industry leaders, will start in the fall.
FSC is also building a portal for new performers. Dubbed INSPIRE, the section will help those new to the industry understand the business, find resources, and know their rights.
New public-facing press sections will give those reporting on the industry access to important data and facts, including scientific research and expert contacts, as well as recommended documentaries, books and articles. By providing resources, FSC hopes to better combat misinformation and stigma put forth by anti-industry voices.
“The new FSC site will be the first stop for accurate, unbiased information on the adult industry, whether you’re a journalist, a legislator or small business owner,” Leue said.
“We’ve worked hard over the past year to build a resource-rich portal, and in the coming months, we’ll be announcing new programs and classes to help our industry and its workers succeed.”
