Wynonna Judd has added her name to the growing list of celebrities participating in the 1 for All campaign designed to speak out in support of the First Amendment. As part of the campaign, Wynonna will participate in Free To Tweet, a day-long online celebration of First Amendment rights on December 15. During the tweetathon, Americans are encouraged to tweet their support of the First Amendment using the hashtag #FreeToTweet. Blake Shelton and Joe Nichols have also signed on to the campaign.
“My success in music would not have been possible without freedom of expression,” Wynonna said. “It’s an honor for me to join in supporting the 220th anniversary of Bill of Rights Day.”
Free To Tweet will also give high school and college students the opportunity to win one of 22 $5,000 scholorships. All they have to do is tweet creatively about the First Amendment. More information can be found at FreeToTweet.org.
The 1 for All campaign is the largest of its kind in scope and reach. It uses a fresh approach by featuring celebrities and public figures to tweet, rock, write, read, sing, worship, assemble, petition and much more. 1 for All is a non-partisan campaign launched in 2010 to address a lack of awareness by the American public about the five freedoms provided under the First Amendment.
Ellen DeGeneres, John Mellencamp, Ke$ha, and David Gregory were among the first celebrities to join the campaign. For more information on the 1 for All campaign, visit www.1forall.us.
