High School Students To Become First Amendment Protectors

FLAGSTAFF, AZ – Native Public Media will launch its First Amendment Protectors (FAP) curriculum at the 9th Annual Andy Harvey Native American Broadcast and Journalism Workshop, June 17 – 21, 2019 at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.

In an age where free speech is increasingly challenged, the curriculum addresses how Native youth can mobilize to protect the rights of Native citizens to tell their own stories about issues affecting Indian Country. The NPM First Amendment training targets Native youth and aims to raise awareness, educate, and cultivate First Amendment Protectors and thought-leaders about what is at stake with regards to the First Amendment, journalism, and media, and more vitally, how to protect it.
