New Voices of Alabama is a movement to guarantee student journalists in the state the freedom to report without fear of consequence. Right now, there is no added protection against administrative censorship for high school or college journalists and their advisers, leaving them vulnerable to censorship for simply reporting the truth.
The campaign — led by Paul Wright, the director of student media at the University of Alabama — is still in its early stages. To get involved or learn more, contact pwright [at] sa.ua.edu.
The Alabama legislature will convene on February 2, 2016.
