SABEW First Amendment Initiative

SABEW has launched an important initiative through our First Amendment Committee. Our goal is to accomplish several things:

  1.  Advocate for SABEW members and for the press (broadly defined). Too often, journalists are experiencing serious risks and threats, both externally and internally. The threats include verbal attacks and reduced access from government, violence abroad and continued disruption of news media business models.
  2.  Explore training and events related to press freedom, transparency and access to data.
  3.  Release public statements when appropriate.
