Press Freedom is Under Threat.
We're a national, youth-led organization dedicated to protecting freedom of the press. This is your fight too.
Reporters covering the recent Black Lives Matter protests have been subject to violent attacks by police officers across the country. Many have been arrested and detained. Their crime? Doing their job. These incidents violate the rights enshrined in the First Amendment and set a dangerous precedent of press censorship.
The fight to protect journalists is your fight too. Press freedom is essential to a healthy democracy. Without it, there is no government accountability.
Defending the press isn’t a choice.
It’s your civic duty.
Protect journalists from being targeted while covering social justice protests and ensure that they are able to continue covering current events without being physically harmed, arrested, or censored.
Establish preventative measures to protect journalists from being targeted and hold perpetrators legally accountable.
Establish support systems to provide aid for journalists who have been targeted.
Pass the Journalist Protection Act.
