First Amendment Society 2020

Membership in the First Amendment Society recognizes individuals for their exceptional support with contributions of $500 or more to the 2020 South Dakota News Watch operating budget. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, unchanged since adoption of the Bill of Rights in 1791, protects five freedoms essential to the American democratic system: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition. South Dakota News Watch is among the beneficiaries of this constitutional protection.
