First Amendment News and Insights from MTSU

Iowa State University 2021

For its 1 for All project, Iowa State University in Ames held a week of virtual events promoting understanding of the First Amendment: "First Amendment Days 2021 — Some Assembly Required: A Virtual Celebration of the First Amendment."

The celebration week focused especially on the freedom to protest.

"First Amendment Days is a weeklong celebration of our First Amendment freedoms – religion, speech, press, assembly, petition. A diverse assortment of speakers, events and activities are offered on campus every spring as a creative way to engage students and the entire Iowa State community to better understand the power of free expression. First Amendment Days is also designed to provide opportunities to exercise our five freedoms," the website says.

"Now in its 19th year, First Amendment Days is the longest-running continual student-led First Amendment celebration at any university in the U.S."
