The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University (the Institute) works to defend and strengthen the freedoms of speech and the press in the digital age through strategic litigation, research, and public education. It aims to be a vibrant community, a generator of new ideas, a distinctive voice for these fundamental freedoms in public discourse, and an effective defender of these freedoms in the courts in the digital age. The award provides general support to the Institute as it works across four substantive areas: 1) reviving the First Amendment as a meaningful constraint on government surveillance; 2) protecting free speech on social media; 3) strengthening legal frameworks related to government transparency; and, 4) protecting the rights of protest and dissent.
