On August 16, hundreds of news outlets across the country, including many student publications, responded to President Trump’s anti-media rhetoric with editorials promoting freedom of the press. The effort was organized and led by The Boston Globe.
The Student Press Law Center collected some of these editorials to amplify student voices as they defended themselves to the people who matter most: their own communities.
“Student journalists play a vital role in the civic life not only of their schools but of their communities. They are increasingly marginalized and censored as the “war on media” discourse takes hold,“ said Hadar Harris, executive director of the SPLC. “...We stand together with student and professional journalists to defend the importance of the free and independent press.”
