We invite you to join us at the 20th annual CJFE Gala: A Night to Honour Courageous Reporting
When: Thursday, November 30, 2017
Where: Fairmont Royal York, Toronto, ON
At the CJFE Gala, we honour individuals from Canada and abroad who have risked their jobs, their freedom or even their lives to bring us the truth. The Gala also pays tribute to the countless journalists and media workers who have been killed, mostly with impunity, as a direct result of their work over the past year. Join us in paying tribute to these brave individuals.
The evening includes:
- Cocktail reception and dinner
- Award presentations
- Photo exhibit and sale
- Special guest appearances
- Memorial of journalists killed in 2016
- Video presentations on press freedom around the world
Proceeds from the Gala directly support CJFE’s critical work. This includes:
- The Journalists in Distress Fund for emergency assistance to media workers whose lives are threatened for their work.
- Advocating for stronger free expression rights and policies in Canada and abroad.
- Leading international campaigns to free unjustly detained journalists and free expression advocates around the world.
- Monitoring the evolving state of free expression at home through our annual Review of Free Expression in Canada.
