Committee to Protect Journalists
Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2023


Contact: Joel Simon, Executive Director

Purpose: We promote press freedom worldwide by defending the rights of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.
By publicly revealing abuses against the press and by acting on behalf of imprisoned and threatened journalists, CPJ effectively warns journalists and news organizations where attacks on press freedom are occurring. CPJ organizes vigorous public protests and works through diplomatic channels to effect change. CPJ publishes articles and news releases; special reports; a biannual magazine, Dangerous Assignments; and Attacks on the Press, the most comprehensive annual survey of press freedom around the world.
