Around the world, USAGM journalists risk their lives and livelihoods to report the truth to audiences in media-restrictive environments. They remain dedicated to the advancement of freedom and democracy through the free exchange of information and ideas, believing that a more informed world is a safer world. The USAGM Employee Association was established to be an employee support network for these journalists and support staff.
Your donation is critical for helping the Association provide assistance to USAGM journalists, stringers, and support personnel who experience immediate life-threatening danger or are injured during the course of their USAGM duties.
“The work of MBN’s journalists is vital to a free press. These courageous, professional and determined correspondents often risk their lives to report on the news in the Middle East and around the world. We support the USAGM Association and its work to assist those journalists in need.”
Amb. Alberto Fernandez
