Thompson Working to Help Pass ‘New Voices’ Bill
The New Voices of Indiana is an organization committed to the protection of student free speech.
The organization is comprised of adult supporters and two separate groups of high school and college students. There is one team, the legislative team, that is in charge of writing, advocating and working toward passing the New Voices Bill. The New Voices Bill is a bill trying to be passed hoping to implement protections for the student journalists all throughout the state.
“I am part of the media team. My group and I are in charge of covering the bill and all its parts; we write stories, interview, and cover the bill as real news,” said Senior Lily Thompson.
Thompson is in the process of writing a story about the importance of The New Voices Bill currently.
