Wynonna Judd, one half of the legendary country music duo The Judds, has added her name to the list of celebrities speaking out for the freedom of expression in the United States. She’s joined the “Free To Tweet” event as part of the “1 For All” campaign. The one-day online event celebrates the First Amendment rights on Wednesday, December 15th – also known as Bill Of Rights Day. During the event, Americans are encouraged to join some of their favorite celebrities by using the hashtag #FreeToTweet on Twitter all day long.
High school and college students nationwide are eligible to win one of 22 $5,000 scholarships by sending out creative Tweets about the First Amendment during the “Free to Tweet” event.
“My success in music would not have been possible without freedom of expression,” said Wynonna. “It’s an honor for me to join in supporting the 220th anniversary of Bill of Rights Day.”
The unprecedented “1 For All” campaign is the largest of its kind in scope and reach. It plans on using a fresh approach by using public figures to tweet, rock, write, read, worship, assemble, petition and much more. Ellen DeGeneres, Ke$ha, John Mellencamp, Blake Shelton, and David Gregory were among the first celebrities to put their names down for the cause.
