New Voices of Louisiana 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 Nicki Boudreaux, college media adviser at Nicholls State University — is still in its early stages. To get involved or learn more, contact nicki.boudreaux [at] nicholls.edu.
The Louisiana legislature will convene on March 14, 2016. Its organizational session is January 11.
