Video: Imprisoned Journalists and the Students Working to Set Them Free

On March 26, 2015, Newseum Institute chief operating officer Gene Policinski hosted a panel with three University of Maryland journalism students to discuss Press Uncuffed, their new campaign to free imprisoned journalists in partnership with the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). Students Lejla Sarcevic, Teddy Amenabar and Courtney Mabeus were joined by Courtney Radsch, the advocacy and outreach director at CPJ, and Washington Post reporter Dana Priest, the Knight Chair in Public Affairs Journalism at University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism.

“Journalism/Works” is an ongoing program of the Newseum Institute that focuses on journalism that matters — news reports in print, broadcast and online that produce change, provide insight and that fulfill the “watchdog on government” mission envisioned for a free press in the First Amendment.
