Students are leading the fight for press freedom, help SPLC support them

Every day, the Student Press Law Center hears from student journalists across the country who have been told they cannot be trusted with the story they need to tell. 

In 2020 alone, student journalists faced censorship and administrative pressure while reporting on COVID-19, an historic election, unprecedented racial justice protests, difficulties with distance learning and more. They call SPLC because they do not want this to happen to another student ever again. They have become organizers, working to restore and protect student press freedom through New Voices in order to serve their communities. 

We are proud to support students in this work, to connect them with a community of student journalists fighting for their communities, and to offer our expertise and support to help them reach their goals.

By partnering with the Student Press Law Center, you provide critical support to these students as they organize to promote student press freedom.


You help facilitate student-led community discussions, op-eds and outreach campaigns on Student Press Freedom Day that raise awareness of student press censorship and its deleterious impacts. 

You help students nationwide connect with each other, recognize how common and capricious censorship is, and work together to develop both the strategies and the courage to advocate before state legislatures for New Voices press freedom laws. 

And you let students know that if they are pressured to squelch a story that matters to their community, they do not have to fight back alone. 

Thank you for all you do to support student press freedom, and for partnering with SPLC to support these students in their work.

Before the year is out, we hope you'll help in one more way: by donating. Your financial support goes directly to helping support students in the fight for student press freedom.
