February 24, 2022

Student Press Freedom Day (Feb. 24) is a day of action where student journalists in the United States raise awareness of the challenges they face, celebrate their accomplishments and build coalitions to protect and restore press freedom in their states.

Student journalists must be empowered to tell the stories most important to their communities, free from censorship – and self-censorship. That’s why the theme for Student Press Freedom Day 2022 is ‘Unmute Yourself!’

Join us for a series of events, trainings and community building opportunities designed to uplift student journalists’ voices and prepare them to fight for press freedom.Start planning how you’ll celebrate Student Press Freedom Day on Feb. 24, 2022.

Are you ready to unmute yourself?
