On World Press Freedom Day, let’s come together to #ProtectJournalistsOnline

Journalists are increasingly subject to internet attacks and harassment, which jeopardize their capacity to report the truth.

This should not be the reality.

We can all help to protect journalists online.

At the Coalition Against Online Violence, we are more than 85 global organizations defending press freedom and providing better solutions for journalists facing online abuse. This World Press Freedom Day, we urge social media platforms to take measures to combat online violence.

We are advocating for journalists’ rights to ensure that our democracy remains strong. Join us in preserving press freedom and encouraging platforms, governments and media organizations to #ProtectJournalistsOnline.

Because without freedom of expression, there is no democracy.
