New Voices: Virginia

The New Voices campaign has come to Virginia! Fourteen states have already passed laws protecting student journalists from censorship. Advocates in Virginia hope that our state could be the next.

But what exactly is this campaign? The Student Press Law Center explains it best: “New Voices is a student-powered nonpartisan grassroots movement of state-based activists who seek to protect student press freedom. They include advocates in law, education, journalism and civics to make schools and colleges more welcoming places for student voices.”
