"We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to the citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever."
— Declaration of Rights of Women, 1876

Welcome! Click on the Newseum Glogpedia to learn more about the five freedoms and see how groups throughout U.S. history have put them into action. You'll see how everyone from Chinese immigrants to a college women's rowing team have used the First Amendment as their foundation when trying to change their lives for the better. Some protests were more successful than others, but even a small change often proved to be the start of something bigger.
