Seeking justice for murdered journalists

Since 1992, almost 800 journalists have been murdered for nothing more than simply reporting the news. In nine out of ten of these cases, their killers will go unpunished.

We must not only honor their memory and their brave legacies but also urge governments around the world to immediately end impunity for those who have committed crimes against journalists.
