Blake Shelton Joins 1 For All campaign to Support Free Speech

Blake Shelton  has added his name to the growing list of artists and celebrities speaking out in support of freedom of expression.

As part of the 1 for All campaign, Shelton will participate in “Free to Tweet,” a daylong online celebration of First Amendment rights on Dec. 15, Bill of Rights Day. During the tweetathon, all Americans are encouraged to tweet their support of the First Amendment and how they enjoy those freedoms—using the hashtag #FreeToTweet.

High school and college students nationwide are eligible to win one of 22 $5,000 scholarships by tweeting creatively about the First Amendment. More information is at FreeToTweet.org.

“Free speech comes naturally to Blake Shelton,” said Ken Paulson, president of the First Amendment Center and founder of 1 for All. “Candor and integrity are hallmarks of his career and we’re very pleased to have him join this effort.”

The unprecedented campaign is the largest of its kind in scope and reach, and uses a fresh approach by featuring public figures celebrating their freedoms to tweet, rock, write, read, sing, worship, assemble, petition and much more.

Ellen DeGeneres, John Mellencamp, Ke$ha, and David Gregory were among the first wave of performers, artists and journalists to show their support for the First Amendment by appearing in the ads.
