In honor of Constitution Day, SPJ/ONA DePaul and other SPJ student chapters across the country organized Free Speech Walls. Participants exercised their First Amendment rights to free speech by writing posts ranging from political to poetic.
Check out our Storify for more details.
SPJ/ONA DePaul received the Region 5 Outstanding Campus Chapter Award at the 2014 Excellence in Journalism (EIJ) Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. This is their third win in four years.
The organization was honored for its inventive programming during the 2013-2014 academic year, including a Women in Sports Journalism panel and web coding workshop with Andy Boyle of the Chicago Tribune. The chapter also presented a social media training for students at Walter Payton College Preparatory High School.
The chapter also organized a Free Speech Wall to celebrate Constitution Day, in which DePaul students exercised their First Amendment rights by sharing uncensored advice, opinions and thoughts. Past president Brianna Kelly and Secretary/Treasurer Rima Mandwee presented a workshop on September 5, 2014 at the EIJ conference with organizational tips for other campus and professional chapters.
SPJ/ONA DePaul was also a finalist for the National Campus Chapter of the Year Award, which they won in 2011 and 2013.
On Sept. 17, 2013, SPJ/ONA DePaul launched the first SPJ Free Speech Wall exercise on Constitution Day. Students set up blank “walls” on our Lincoln Park and Loop campuses so students, faculty, administration and staff could write anything they wanted, exercising their First Amendment rights.
On Sept. 5, SPJ/ONA DePaul will present the Free Speech Wall at the SPJ/RTDNA Excellence in Journalism conference in Nashville. Our student executive board will walk you through how to do your own Free Speech Wall on Sept. 17 this year and join a nationwide effort by tweeting photos, findings and observations to our hashtag, #fsw17.
A few steps to get you started:
- Follow the instructions in the Free Speech Wall presentation on Sept. 5
- Set up your own Free Speech Wall and tweet findings, turnout and photos to #fsw17 on Sept. 17.
- Categorize posts and build a visual (data visualization, chart or other visual). See charts in Powerpoint.
- SPJ/ONA DePaul will do data visualizations in Google Fusion Tables and/or Datawrapper.de this year and post them online.
- Share your work: Tweet findings to #fsw17 by Oct. 1.
- Watch @spjonadepaul for more details and examples. Make sure to follow us and we’ll follow back. We also will post findings to SPJONADePaul.com
