CHATSWORTH, Calif. - The Free Speech Coalition announced today that it will set up a memorial fund in honor of former FSC president and New Beginnings founder Lenny Friedlander, who passed away on August 5.

New Beginnings has been flooded with calls this week from Friedlander's friends and colleagues, many asking for suggestions on how to contribute in his memory. The company is suggesting that donations be made to FSC in light of Friedlander's avid support of the coalition and his six-year tenure as its president.

Donations to the fund will be acknowledged by a note to the family as well as a note of receipt to the person or company making the donation.

A California memorial service for Friedlander will be planned within the next few weeks.
