The New England First Amendment Coalition will present its 2021 Stephen Hamblett First Amendment Award to Yamiche Alcindor, the White House correspondent for PBS NewsHour.

Named after the late publisher of The Providence Journal, the Hamblett Award is given each year to an individual who has promoted, defended or advocated for the First Amendment throughout his or her career.

NEFAC will honor Alcindor at its 11th annual New England First Amendment Awards ceremony from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 21.

The program will be held online. Ticket and registration information can be found here. All proceeds will benefit civics and First Amendment education in New England.
