In 2018, CPJ established a 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, which will help us confront grave threats to press freedom while ensuring we can adapt to a rapidly changing media environment. The plan reflects input from CPJ’s staff, board of directors, and global network of correspondents, as well as from journalists, donors, and representatives of partner organizations.
CPJ has a stake in ensuring that journalists are able to report the truth. With the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, CPJ can continue to vigorously defend press freedom principles and the rights of individual journalists globally, which remains our enduring mission.
The Committee to Protect Journalists promotes press freedom worldwide and defends the right of journalists to report the news safely and without fear of reprisal.
CPJ’s primary goal is to promote and uphold a free press all over the world. Along with these strategic priorities, CPJ will continue winning the release of imprisoned journalists, securing convictions in journalist murders, effecting positive legal reform, and providing emergency support to journalists all over the world.
CPJ’s compelling stories, published on various platforms, humanize press freedom, reach new audiences, bolster advocacy, and increase supporters and donors worldwide.
CPJ identifies threats to journalists and newsrooms that transcend national boundaries and develops initiatives to improve press freedom and ensure journalist safety.
CPJ reports on press freedom and technology and provides digital security information to help journalists protect themselves and their sources.
CPJ increases its international presence with a well-supported global network of correspondents, strong local networks and partnerships, expanded language capacity, and an advocacy strategy that engages global and regional targets.
CPJ transforms its organizational culture, systems, and office space to foster collaboration and communication and ensure the organization adapts to support the execution of the mission.
