The First Amendment is the cornerstone of a government by, for and of the people, yet most Americans can’t name the five freedoms it guarantees. Our vision is an America where everyone knows, understands, values and defends the freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly and petition. We believe that encouraging the broad understanding and vigorous use of these fundamental freedoms by the people is the best way to preserve and protect the First Amendment for future generations.
Join us on April 15 for the virtual Free Expression Awards, supporting the educational work of the Freedom Forum Institute. The 2021 Awards will recognize individuals for their courageous acts of free and fearless expression.
