PETITION LAUNCH DATE: MARCH 8, 2017

"Democracy dies in darkness." - The Washington Post

The White House has launched a full-scale attack on America's free press. In their efforts to convince us that the press is our enemy, they have galvanized our appreciation of the free press and of the first amendment of the Constitution. We Americans know that the free press belongs to all of us and is not to be dismantled, threatened, manipulated or used as a weapon against us.

Join us in standing up for our American Free Press on April 24th!
