The Constitution First Amendment Press Association (CFAPA) s a group of volunteers who gain press credentials to attend events. It also provides a forum for amateur journalists. Robert Henry Rawles (a home-schooled college student) and his father, James Wesley Rawles (a journalism school graduate from San Jose State University) founded the CFAPA in March 2014.

To quote their website: "We provide press credentials free of charge to any adult American Citizen who accepts the Constitutional Journalist’s pledge and who agrees to CFAPA’s Member Terms and Conditions." Unlike other press associations, the CFAPA does not keep a membership roster, and its members can remain anonymous. It is not clear how many other organizations or events honor press credentials from the CFAPA.
