We’re Fighting Back

At the highest levels of government, the press is denounced as “the enemy of the people,” and media outlets are derided as “fake news.”

But we’re fighting back.

The New England First Amendment Coalition is the region’s leading advocate for the First Amendment.

We fight every day to protect press freedom, enhance access to public records, provide First Amendment education, and explain the value of investigative watchdog reporting.

Read our 2018 annual review for a sampling of our work last year and a look at where we are now headed.

Our work depends on the support of individuals like you. Every dollar you give during this Spring Fundraiser will help protect First Amendment freedoms and strengthen newsrooms throughout the region.
