FreeThePress: Postcards for Journalists

“When journalists are silenced, society suffers. As of December 2017, a record 262 journalists were in jail for their work around the world. Prison is isolating — over the years CPJ has reported on journalists denied access to their lawyers and families, on allegations of torture and abuse, and on the sheer lengths to which authorities will go to stop a story. Now, you can help keep the journalists’ stories alive and their spirits up.” – The Committee to Protect Journalists

Stop by to learn more about five imprisoned journalists around the world and write a postcard to let them know how much their work matters.

Join us Wednesday, April 25 from 10 a.m. until noon in the Franklin Hall Commons!
