About the Freedom Forum
The Freedom Forum, based in Washington, D.C., is a nonpartisan foundation that champions the First Amendment as a cornerstone of democracy.
The Freedom Forum is the main funder of the operations of the Newseum, an interactive museum of news in Washington, D.C., and the Newseum Institute, whose initiatives include the First Amendment Center housed in the John Seigenthaler Center at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.; diversity programs such as the Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference, the Chips Quinn Scholars program, and the Religious Freedom Education Project, along with all of the educational programs that currently take place at the Newseum.
The Freedom Forum was established in 1991 under the direction of Founder Al Neuharth as successor to a foundation started in 1935 by newspaper publisher Frank E. Gannett. The Freedom Forum is not affiliated with Gannett Co. Its work is supported by income from an endowment of diversified assets.
