New England First Amendment Coalition

NEFAC is a non-profit organization that defends, promotes and expands public access to government and the work it does — something pivotal in the world of journalists. Many of NEFAC’s board members are well-known journalists and fellow academics. 

We also provide a free mentorship program to journalists in the region which includes students. Reporters, editors and producers looking for guidance in a variety of professional areas can apply to be paired with a veteran journalist with relevant expertise from publications such as the Boston Globe, VTDigger, The Public’s Radio and others.
