It was the Loeb School’s 18th ceremony, where the First Amendment Award “honors individuals or groups who have in some extraordinary way, exercised or sought to protect the Constitution’s First Amendment rights of free speech, assembly, press, religion, or government petition.”

This year, the First Amendment Award honorees were Tara Gunnigle and Jon Pearson, a couple from Webster, N.H. Read more on the event and why Gunnigle and Pearson were recognized on the NHIOP blog.
