The Committee to Protect Journalists held their 22nd International Press Freedom Awards benefit dinner last evening at the Waldorf in NYC. The event was hosted by PBS senior correspondent Gwen Ifill. The dinner was chaired by David Boies.
CPJ’s work includes denouncing anti-press violations, providing assistance to targeted journalists, and advocating for press freedom worldwide. Journalists from Brazil, China, Kyrgzstan and Liberia were honored, as well as Alan Rusbridger, editor of the London-based Guardian.
