Committee to Protect Journalists
The Committee to Protect Journalists promotes press freedom worldwide by defending the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.
When would a journalist call upon CPJ?
* In an emergency. Using local and foreign contacts, CPJ can intervene whenever foreign correspondents are in trouble. CPJ is also prepared to notify news organizations, government officials, and human rights organizations immediately of press freedom violations.
* When traveling on assignment. CPJ can advise journalists covering dangerous assignments.
* When covering the news. Attacks against the press are news, and they often serve as the first signal of a crackdown on all freedoms. CPJ is uniquely situated to provide journalists with information and insight into press conditions around the world.
