The State of the First Amendment surveys, commissioned since 1997 by the
First Amendment Center and Newseum, are a regular check on how Americans view
their first freedoms of speech, press, assembly, religion and petition.
The periodic surveys examine public attitudes toward freedom of speech,
press, religion and the rights of assembly and petition; and sample public
opinion on contemporary issues involving those freedoms.
