World Press Freedom Day
Since 1993, World Press Freedom Day has served as a celebratory moment to honor the work of journalists and news organizations that use their platforms to hold the powerful accountable, provide fact-based news stories, and assert freedom of expression as a common good. PEN America has played a critical role bringing the celebration of World Press Freedom Day to its Members across the United States.

We are currently facing a moment when these vital local journalists and news sources are under threat. Wrought by a lack of financial resources and ruinous corporate media consolidation, local news coverage is experiencing an existential crisis. This World Press Freedom Day, PEN America is highlighting the work of a group of community-based journalists, editors, and publishers that demonstrate the necessity of local news stories in fostering informed civil discourse.

Join this distinguished group as they participate in a moderated discussion in which they will discuss their work, the importance of regional journalism, and how to support local news sources.
