The Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University has recently launched a nationwide awareness effort, the 1 for All Campaign, sharing the critical need nationwide for Americans to know, and practice, our First Amendment rights to free speech, a free press, peaceable assembly, religion and petitioning the government.
The campaign has rallied some star-studded support to get out the word across the country, including Skillet’s John Cooper, who comments about freedom of faith, saying, “I am grateful for the unalienable right to be able to worship God in a free country without fear of government intrusion. The First Amendment makes that possible.”
Other artists, authors and athletes supporting it include the legendary Loretta Lynn; Rosanne Cash, Kane Brown, Jason Isbell, Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker; Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton; and bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize finalist Ann Patchett.
Surveys by the Freedom Forum First Amendment Center indicate that one-third of Americans can’t name a single freedom in the First Amendment and that a vast majority have very little understanding of these liberties. To remedy that, the campaign ads direct members of the public to http://1forall.today,
where they can learn all they need to know about the First Amendment, including tips on how to help preserve and protect these essential freedoms.
