*This program is hosted by our partner, Media Impact Funders, who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*

In this moment of grief and division within our country, it’s urgent that we reflect on the core values that make us Americans, and that we must maintain and strengthen in times of crisis. Philanthropy plays a critical role in maintaining our First Amendment freedoms by supporting institutions and independent voices that strengthen a culture of free, democratic discourse.

We’re inviting participants in Pittsburgh Foundation’s recent 1A conferences -- The National Conference on the First Amendment: Bedrock of American Freedoms held in October at Duquesne University and The First Amendment for the Twenty-First Centuryconference held in June -- to share their thoughts with MIF’s Journalism Funders network on threats and opportunities to promote a First Amendment culture.

  • The national survey research into public opinion on the First Amendment and issues relating to freedom of expression
  • Ways journalism, media and civic education around constitutional issues can help push back against the forces currently dividing our nation
  • First Amendment freedom as it relates to Indigenous rights
