The New Voices Legislation was passed on December 21, 2021 by Governor Phil Murphy. This legislation helps to protect student press freedoms with state laws.

This new legislation helps all students in the state to have their voices heard more clearly. Supporters of the legislation work in the fields of journalism, civics, law and education. These adults will help and protect students and their opinions under this new legislation.

New Jersey is only the 15th state to approve the New Voices Legislation in America. It’s important that all states adopt this legislation in order to protect free speech rights and the futures of all students.
