In its second year, Student Advocates for Speech (SAS) students have established clubs in 19 schools, spanning 15 states in the United States.
Currently, 21 SAS student leaders are participating in the program. Several of them have established clubs that cater to over 10,000 students, particularly in states like Texas, Florida, and Missouri, where educational censorship is prevalent. The program provides participants with virtual advocacy training, opportunities to engage in national dialogues with authors, journalists, and reporters of banned books, and assistance in amplifying their voices through media interviews and op-eds.
NCAC’s Youth Free Expression Program administers the SAS program and empowers youth to make a difference in the fight for free expression.
