I recently had the pleasure of joining the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression (which, among other things, gives the inestimable privilege of voting on The Jefferson Muzzles); I think very highly of the organization, and thought I'd also mention a new project that they are crowdfunding, A Mobile Monument to the First Amendment:

The Mobile Monument Project involves transforming a standard issue 20′ ISO shipping container into an elegant and engaging representation of our precious First Amendment values.

The exterior features more than 400 sq ft of "chalkboard" space where visitors can express themselves however they wish. On the inside, a beautiful open gallery space provides a backdrop for rotating exhibits, performances, installations—the sky's the limit!

In short, the Mobile Monument is an interactive exploration of what it means to enjoy and exercise our right of free expression.

And because it's so portable, the Mobile Monument takes this important message straight to the people. Once completed, the Monument can go almost anywhere:
College Campuses
State Capitols
Public Parks
Festivals
Community Events
Concerts

Looks like a fun idea—if you're interested, go to the IndieGoGo page and check it out.
