Dear Friend,

Just before Thanksgiving, I reflected upon all I have to be thankful for this holiday season and you were on my list. At the heart of the Student Press Law Center is our supportive and well-connected board, the passionate advocates working to make change in every state, interns who support their peers in their pursuit of telling important stories, attorneys who volunteer their time to help student journalists and our dedicated staff.

Today, I’m asking you to make a year-end gift to support SPLC

Together, we’ve fought egregious instances of censorship and helped student journalists navigate what is often a confusing legal landscape. Certainly, the pandemic changed how many student newsrooms operate and inspired student journalists to pursue stories that involve controversial topics. These stories have emboldened some administrators to censor student journalists.
Today’s student journalists need your support more than ever.

And SPLC is growing to better serve student journalists and their advisers. In addition to our expanding library of legal resources, SPLC is ramping up efforts to highlight censorship and public records refusals in the news media. While we finalize our strategic plan, we’re working with new partners to build momentum toward Student Press Freedom Day, which is February 24, 2022.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Student Press Law Center will help us reach students who can’t meet us at the big journalism conventions and student journalists who may not be a part of any formal program.
Donate Now
I’m proud of all that we’ve accomplished in my 30 years with the SPLC and I’m grateful to have stood alongside you. Thank you for continuing to stand with student journalists.

Warmest regards,

Mike Hiestand
Senior Legal Counsel 

P.S. Our board has put up $10,000 in matching funds for this campaign – donate before December 31st to help us meet our goal!
