Newseum Announces New Initiative Bringing First Amendment Rights Education to K-12 School Educators, Students, and the General Public

The Freedom Forum Institute (FFI) and the Washington, DC-based Newseum have announced a new initiative supported by the Charles Koch Foundation that will bring to life First Amendment freedoms for K-12 educators, students, and the general public. The initiative includes several events, a new collection of educational materials, and the addition of a part-time researcher who will help expand FFI’s annual State of the First Amendment survey.

Freedom Forum Institute Vice President of Newseum Education Barbara McCormack noted, “We have a long history of creating First Amendment resources based on the needs of our education community. This gift will allow us to continue to provide quality content to teachers.”

NewseumED makes history, civics, and media literacy relevant by using the First Amendment as a springboard to illuminate the challenges and ideals of our democracy and to cultivate the skills needed to make informed decisions in a divided and demanding world.
