1 for All Campus Initiative
The 1 for All Campus Initiative builds awareness of the First Amendment by bringing thought-provoking First Amendment programs and speakers to colleges and universities nationwide.
Funded by a grant from the McCormick Foundation, the 1 for All Campus Initiative provides $5,000 grants to host a campus program, tapping the talents of local and national experts and educators to illuminate pivotal First Amendment issues.
Among possible activities is the planting of a Liberty Tree, like the original in Boston, campus as a symbol of the importance of the First Amendment to an educated public.
