February 23, 2023

Join us for the fifth annual Student Press Freedom Day on Feb. 23, 2023, as student journalists across the United States raise awareness of the challenges they face, celebrate their contributions to their schools and communities, and take actions to protect and restore their First Amendment freedoms.

We’re excited to announce the theme for Student Press Freedom Day 2023 is “Bold Journalism & Brave Advocacy.”

Participate in expert-led training workshops, an op-ed coaching program, student-led community forums, and a letter writing party on behalf of New Voices. Or get creative and plan your own Student Press Freedom Day activities! Your involvement is what makes the day truly impactful.

The best way to stay in the loop about all the exciting ways to get involved this year is by signing up for Student Press Freedom Day email updates. You’ll get first access to event registration, talking points, a toolkit, and more!
