THE CAMPAIGN: MISSION, purpose, legacy
Who We Are
The First Amendment Team is the client for Martin Hall Agency, a student-run Advertising and Public Relations agency at West Virginia University. The First Amendment client is dedicated to fighting complacency and ensuring First Amendment preservation among college students.
Why We Are Here
The First Amendment is foundational to United States democracy, yet it is poorly understood by many American citizens. The First Amendment team is here to inform college students about the amendment and its five protections -- religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition — while also encouraging them to become protectors of the First Amendment. We believe that a full understanding of these fundamental freedoms is the only way to ensure First Amendment protections for our generation and generations to come.
What We Are Doing
This campaign is built on the idea that more students need to understand and protect the First Amendment. To increase student comprehension and involvement we have developed three strategies with the intent to inform, engage, and encourage students to take action. Through a series of events and activities, this campaign will leave a legacy for the next generations.
