Live Your Freedoms

The Mission of the

First Amendment Museum

is to inspire US to “Live Our Freedoms” by understanding and using our First Amendment rights to advance democracy so that all reap the benefits.

We envision a nation of individuals who are informed, active, and engaged in their commitment to uphold the freedoms protected by the First Amendment, inspired to live their freedoms in their everyday lives, and respectful of others’ right to do so.

Empowering Americans to champion their freedoms

Today, our ability to understand, protect, and exercise our First Amendment freedoms is just as critical as ever. Democracy cannot operate without informed, active, and engaged citizens, and our constitution gives us all the right to participate. But what are our constitutional rights as American citizens? And how many of us actually know them? This is why the First Amendment Museum was formed, and why we need your help today. Watch our video below to see more.
