Since we opened our doors in January 2021, we have been active before Congress, the courts and in public opinion to protect all the five freedoms of the First Amendment.
In our first year, Protect The 1st stood up for people from across the ideological and social spectrum, of all religions and no religion. We opposed retaliation by government and other powerful entities against unpopular speech. We have stood for legislation that protects the confidential sources of reporters. We have advanced measures to protect speech, conscience and religious freedom in the military, and in private religious schools, and elsewhere.
Freedom of Speech
Freedom of the Press
In the year ahead, Protect The 1st will continue to fight for these causes. We will add to our agenda any significant effort to curtail, degrade or squelch freedom of speech, religion, freedom of the press, the right to petition the government, and to peaceably assemble.
