World Press Freedom Committee


"The World Press Freedom Committee is an international umbrella organization that includes 45 journalistic groups -- print, online and broadcast, labor and management, journalists, editors, publishers and owners on six continents -- united in the defense and promotion of press freedom in all media. Our goal is to strengthen and secure a global environment in which the news media can be free and independent. To this end, we work to reduce the ways and occasions in which governments, intergovernmental organizations or others try to legitimize restrictions on the press. Serving as a watchdog for free news media, the WPFC emphasizes its roles of monitoring press freedom issues and of coordinating of responses to press freedom threats or restrictions."
