WHO WE ARE

WHAT WE DO

Our essential rights and responsibilities as self-governing citizens are expressed in the First Amendment.  First Amendment Voice affirms and promotes freedoms of religion, expression, the media, free assembly, and petition. We also explore how contemporary trends like technological development, media bias, and other factors shape these rights.

We can accomplish this through education, advocacy, network development, and by promoting grassroots solutions.  It is vital to build a foundation with an understanding of the meaning and application of the 1st Amendment; to address issues and policies affecting these rights through advocacy; to build a broad pluralistic constituency of citizens as this is vital to all, regardless of religion, race, culture, or socio-economic background; and to demonstrate through grassroots solutions the power of self-governing ethical citizens engaged in solving problems facing our communities.

OUR MISSION

First Amendment Voice serves to invigorate Americans to understand and exercise First Amendment rights through a collaborative campaign of awareness, education, advocacy, and facilitation.

UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES AND VALUES

+ Commitment to something greater than oneself.
+ Respect and caring for others.
+ Service above self.

I believe that the most essential element of our defense  of freedom is our insistence on speaking out for the cause of religious liberty.

Ronald Reagan

To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.

Frederick Douglass

True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.

Thomas Jefferson to Doctor James Curie January 28, 1786
