Heroes of the First Amendment

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Tinker v. Des Moines Supreme Court case and the “Year of the Student Journalist.” To recognize the decision and celebrate the First Amendment, the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Missouri organized “Heroes of the First Amendment” where students from across the metropolitan area got to attend a press event and meet some well-known advocates of the First Amendment.

The program took place in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Missouri on Thursday, Nov. 7. At the event, students had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the panelists and learn more about how to protect our freedoms. For more information, check out @USCourtsMOED.
