Annual Report

The Committee to Protect Journalists fights for the rights of journalists around the world to report the news freely without fear of reprisal. As a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, CPJ relies solely on contributions from individuals and corporations to carry out our important work. In order to preserve our independence, we do not accept any government grants or support of any kind.

CPJ Annual Report 2012

Individual and corporate donations help us investigate, publicize, and protest attacks on press freedom worldwide. CPJ responds whenever a journalist is in peril. We also assist journalists with urgent needs, such as emergency evacuation, resettlement in exile, medicine, and legal defense. CPJ publishes articles and news releases, special reports, and Attacks on the Press, the most comprehensive annual book on press freedom around the world.

Every report we author and distribute, every campaign we undertake to free jailed journalists, and all our missions to countries where journalists are in distress are funded entirely by donations and gifts from supporters. Your tax-deductible contribution and membership will make a crucial difference in the lives of embattled journalists worldwide.
