CONTACT Justin Silverman | 774.244.2365 |

The New England First Amendment Coalition is pleased to announce the incoming class of fellows for its 2021 New England First Amendment Institute.

Now in its 11th year, the institute provides support and training for New England journalists to give them the tools they need to become more accomplished investigative reporters, well-versed in the freedom of information laws that govern today’s difficult reporting landscape.

The institute — provided at no cost to those who attend — is Oct. 31 through Nov. 6 and features many of the country’s elite reporters, editors and media attorneys.

This year’s institute is made possible by the generosity of the Academy of New England Journalists and Boston University. Other supporters of NEFAC for this year include Hearst Connecticut Media Group, The Robertson Foundation, Paul and Ann Sagan, The Boston Globe and WBUR-Boston.
