WHEREAS, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American the freedoms of speech and the press, in listening and reading as well as speaking and writing;
WHEREAS, persons under 18 are nonetheless Americans for the purpose of the First Amendment, as demonstrated in the Tinker v. De Moines decision;
WHEREAS, the U.S. Federal Government continues to exercise prohibited practices of prior restraint over the speech and press rights or youth without proof of a threat to public safety;
WHEREAS, censorship measures have proven ineffective in ending the consumption of controversial materials by young people;
WHEREAS, the spirit of the First Amendment dictates that it is not the role of the Federal Government to act as a moral censor for the nation, or any segment of the population thereof;
WHEREAS, the continued censorship of various forms of protected expression constitutes a direct violation of the U.S. Constitution;
WE THE UNDERSIGNED urge the U.S. Congress to make laws protecting the speech and press rights of young people in the U.S.
