1 for All, a national nonpartisan program aimed at building understanding and support for First Amendment freedoms is promoting a Free To Tweet campaign for Thursday.
Dec. 15 is the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. It begins with the First Amendment, which is the protection of freedom of expression and freedom of religion.
Wynonna Judd, American country music singer, will participate in the campaign's Free to Tweet online promotion, encouraging Twitter users to express their support of the First Amendment using the hashtag #FreeToTweet.
My success in music would not have been possible without freedom of expression, said Judd. It's an honor for me to join in supporting the 220th anniversary of Bill of Rights Day.
Among others supporting the campaign are TV talk show host Ellen Degeneres, singer John Mellencamp and Meet the Press host David Gregory. High school and college students nationwide, aged 14 to 22, get a bonus for participating: Expressing themselves freely with the hash tag #freetotweet on Twitter will mean an opportunity to win one of the 22 scholarships each worth $5,000.
