The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) promotes press freedom worldwide and defends the right of journalists to report the news safely and without fear of reprisal.
Why do we protect journalists? Journalism plays a vital role in the balance of power between a government and its people. When a country's journalists are silenced, its people are silenced. By protecting journalists, CPJ protects freedom of expression and democracy.
When journalists can't speak, we speak up.
