Defending Press Freedom for 30 Years
This year CPJ celebrated 30 years of fighting for press freedom. We have never been more active, more needed — or more effective.
Please take a few minutes to watch an excerpt from this inspiring documentary about CPJ’s history of impact. (If you’ve got more than a few minutes, click here to watch the full-length version).
You’ll see that while the world of journalism has changed tremendously, our core mission has remained remarkably constant. CPJ began with the idea that journalists around the world should come together to defend the rights of our colleagues working in repressive and dangerous environments.
In 2011, Al-Jazeera journalists covering the revolution in Egypt tweeted at CPJ to alert us that police were at their door. We used all media – old, new, and social — to mobilize a global response. The police backed down.
I hope you’ll consider a year-end gift to support CPJ as we celebrate 30 years of fighting for press freedom. Your support has allowed us to adapt to new challenges and expand our work to keep journalists safe. However, we will need all your help to meet the growing threats to media freedom, both online and off.
