Join us at our Tribute to Journalists 2022, in-person or virtually, to honor the achievements of brave colleagues whose outstanding news reports and media innovations have made a huge impact. Many are intrepid reporters who often put their lives on the line to bring us the news. Today they face unprecedented challenges, and need our help—and recognition—more than ever. You can support our work empowering journalists by becoming a sponsor of D.C.’s premier international media event. For one inspiring evening, U.S. headliners will join those working in countries where free media are in grave danger, all showcasing the importance of quality news.

Event registration will open soon.
