Student journalists play an essential role in their schools by covering complex and, at times, controversial issues that aim to broaden interest in contemporary issues among their peers and community members. The National Coalition Against Censorship’s (NCAC) Student Advocates for Speech (SAS) project and the Student Press Law Center (SPLC) will host 'Fighting for Press Freedom: How to be an Advocate for Student Journalism,' a free online discussion from 8 p.m.
The 2023 SPJ Region 1 conference: Rising Tides, hosted by Roger Williams University Journalism program and SPJ student chapter & Connecticut SPJ, will be held April 21-22, 2023, at Roger Williams University, Bristol, Rhode Island. Programming and registration starts around noon Friday and concludes with an evening reception. Saturday offers a full day of sessions, with a keynote luncheon and Mark of Excellence Awards in the afternoon.
