Friends of the First Amendment Society

Religion, speech, press, assembly and petition are the fundamental values the First Amendment gives all Americans. When you give to the Freedom Forum, you are making a powerful commitment to fostering First Amendment freedoms for all.

Friends of the First Amendment Society donors are the Freedom Forum’s foundational partners who contribute $1,000 or more each year. You help us show people how essential their First Amendment freedoms are in the 21st century —now and always.

For more information or to join by phone, please contact Elizabeth Dickson at 202/292-6371, or [email protected].
