CPJ uses a combination of reporting and advocacy to support press freedom and the rights of journalists worldwide. When advocacy alone is not enough, CPJ’s Journalist Assistance program provides direct support to individuals who are working to disseminate news in dire situations or who are being persecuted for their reporting.
To report a press freedom violation please contact the appropriate CPJ regional staff. All information is confidential. See below for regional contact details.
The safest way to contact CPJ is via SecureDrop. Here’s how:
First, download the Tor Browser which makes Web browsing anonymous and protects it from eavesdropping. Because of the protection it offers, Tor Browser is the only way to access SecureDrop.
When you have downloaded Tor, visit CPJ's SecureDrop address in Tor Browser: 2x2hb5ykeu4qlxqe.onion
You can also contact us via e-mail, mail, telephone, or fax. You will be asked to provide information about your circumstance, which will be treated in confidence.
