We invite you to join us at the 2015 CJFE Gala!
The 18th annual CJFE Gala: A Night to Honour Courageous Reporting is on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015. The evening includes a cocktail reception and dinner, award presentations, photo exhibit and silent auction, special guest appearances and video presentations on press freedom around the world.
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. We invite you to join us in paying tribute to some of these brave individuals. Proceeds from the Gala directly support CJFE’s critical work. This includes:
- The Journalists in Distress Fund for emergency medical fees, temporary housing, relocation expenses and more 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
