About Student Press Freedom Day

This event is part of the SPLC’s Student Press Freedom Day 2023 programming.

Join us for the fifth annual Student Press Freedom Day on Feb. 23, 2023, as student journalists across the United States raise awareness of the challenges they face, celebrate their contributions to their schools and communities, and take actions to protect and restore their First Amendment freedoms.

Participate in expert-led training workshops (like the Spokesperson training!), an op-ed coaching program, student-led community forums, and a letter writing party on behalf of New Voices. Or get creative and plan your own Student Press Freedom Day activities! Your involvement is what makes the day truly impactful.
