New Voices of Idaho is a movement to guarantee student journalists in the state the freedom to report without fear of consequence. Right now, there is no added protection against administrative censorship for high school or college journalists and their advisers, leaving them vulnerable to censorship for simply reporting the truth.
The campaign — led by Rebecca Tallent, a journalism professor at the University of Idaho — is still in its early stages. To get involved or learn more, contact rtallent [at] uidaho.edu.
The Idaho legislature will convene on January 11, 2016.
