For democracy to survive, journalists must be protected from government surveillance and shielded from harassment.

I’ve served as a founding board member of the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) since its inception, with the goal to protect the First and Fourth Amendment rights of journalists, whistleblowers and sources from the constant threats from government surveillance — and the ever-expanding dangers of surveillance capitalism.

Our mission is to fiercely protect free press and free speech principles and rights — not the personalities involved. Any and every individual journalist and source is important because, no matter where they fall on the political spectrum, when their rights are violated, all our rights are violated, and we are all in danger.
