The 1 for All First Amendment Challenge is funded by a generous grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and administered by the American Society of News Editors’ Youth Journalism Initiative. The Journalism Education Association has endorsed the 1 for All First Amendment Challenge.

1 for All is a national nonpartisan program designed to build understanding and support for First Amendment freedoms. 1 for All provides teaching materials to the nation’s schools, supports educational events on America’s campuses and reminds the public that the First Amendment serves everyone, regardless of faith, race, gender or political leanings. It is truly one amendment for all.
