Campaign launches to educate youth about First Amendment
A nationwide campaign, 1 for ALL, has been launched to promote the First Amendment to young Americans through education and advertising. The initiative is aimed at people ages 8 to 22 as well as those who teach them. It is designed to apply First Amendment freedoms to modern technologies and concepts. The first-of-its-kind campaign relies on supporters to provide free advertising space, and features interactive ways for people to get involved, such as a video contest. People are also encouraged to submit photos, songs and stories.The campaign also provides lesson plans and promotes First Amendment events on college campuses. Link to news story.
