Major Supporters

The New England First Amendment Coalition appreciates the support of all its donors and volunteers. The work we accomplish every day to promote the First Amendment and open government simply would not occur without your help. In particular, NEFAC would like to thank the following Major Supporters for their contributions to our coalition in 2016:
