CPJ's high-level advocacy has helped win the early release of imprisoned journalists, secure convictions in journalist murders, and enable positive legal reform in countries where the climate for free expression has deteriorated. All journalists should be able to report freely without any fear of harassment or retaliation. We will persevere in our fight to defend freedom of the press.
