Join the Student Press Law Center on Thursday, Jan 12 at 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT for a special Student Press Freedom Day Workshop: How to Be a Spokesperson for Student Press Freedom.

About the Workshop:

Your story can make things better for other student journalists!

Telling your personal story is a crucial skill for advocates, but it can be challenging when you’re used to reporting on the story rather than being the subject. In this workshop you’ll learn helpful advocacy techniques and get to practice acting as a spokesperson for student press freedom with your peers. It’s interactive, fun and free!

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.
