First Amendment & Local Activism

Truthful, open, and accessible communication is the foundation of a civil and free society. Every issue, challenge, and opportunity hinges on an individual’s ability to speak freely. Free speech is central to critical thinking, learning, and the expression of one’s identity.
People in society form communities, groups, and organizations around shared interests and ideas. The ability to discuss, educate, and advocate for their cause is rooted in free speech. No nation can flourish without freedom of expression.
The Local Activist Accelerator is a project of Citizens for Free Speech (CFFS). We are dedicated to exercising our First Amendment Rights as protected by the U.S. Constitution. Our vision is an America where every citizen values and courageously defends their First Amendment Rights by actively participating in the public process at the local level.
