Join the Fight to Protect First Amendment Freedoms and the Public’s Right to Know

At the highest levels of government, the press is denounced as “the enemy of the people.” Media outlets are derided as purveyors of “fake news.” Reporters covering events are being threatened with violence and even assaulted.

Government officials are impeding press and citizen access to public records. They are withholding vital information about COVID-19 and other matters of public interest.

NEFAC is pushing back. We invite you to join the fight by becoming a sustaining member of our coalition of journalists, attorneys, educators and concerned citizens working to protect First Amendment freedoms and the public’s right know about their government.
