USAGM Employee Association:
Championing Press Freedom

USAGM journalists around the world risk their lives every day to report the truth to audiences in media-restrictive environments.

The USAGM Employee Association is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that helps journalists at the five USAGM networks who are in life-threatening danger, experience hardship, or are injured during the course of their USAGM duties.

We’d like to thank press freedom champions like you for your tremendous generosity.

Since 2019, your support has enabled the USAGM Employee Association to provide practical assistance to address the financial and material needs of nearly a dozen journalists and family members across USAGM’s networks.

Your donation will help USAGM

  • Provide financial assistance to the families and survivors of USAGM journalists, stringers, or support personnel who die in the course of their USAGM duties, in order to cover funeral costs, living expenses, and other related financial hardship costs
  • Fund evacuation, safety, medical, or other related costs in the event any USAGM journalists, stringers, or support personnel are in immediate life-threatening danger or are injured during the course of their USAGM duties
  • Carry out such other activities as deemed necessary to raise funds for the purposes described above.
