CJFE defends your right to free expression. What does this mean? We fight for openness in government and hold political institutions to account for rights violations, censorship, or damaging our democratic institutions. We support a functional democracy by protecting whistleblowers and press freedom to keep Canadians informed. And we fight to keep our digital rights strong so we can communicate online freely and express ourselves without fear of reprisal. But we can’t do it alone – we need your help. Here are four ways that you can support CJFE’s work:
Become a memberOur membership is growing across the country, and we would love to add you to our ranks. Members help determine CJFE’s strategic direction, elect members to our Board of Directors, help us monitor rights violations, and are entitled to attend our Annual General Meeting and other events. Membership is a small (and flexible) annual cost, all of which directly supports our good work in defense of free expression. So please, join CJFE today!
VolunteerWith our staff of four, CJFE may appear to be a tiny organization on the surface. But it’s our volunteers who allow us to do so much work and extend our reach so far. From writers to editors to graphic designers, lawyers, researchers and more, we need good volunteers. So if you have skills and time, let us know how you can help!
Make a donationCJFE is completely dependent on our donors, members, and sponsors for our operations. Our budget is small, and there are many great reasons to donate. Every dollar makes a difference, so we invite you to make a donation today.
Spread the wordFollow us on Twitter. Like us on Facebook. Post our articles, share our alerts, write letters of your own, and come out to our events. Tell your friends about the good work we do and how important it is to stay vigilant in the fight for free expression. CJFE can reach exponentially further with your voice added to ours, so help us spread the word! Thank you for your continued commitment to free expression. It is you, our friends, members and supporters, who make CJFE the incredible organization that we are. We couldn’t do it without your help!
