OUR WORK

PROTECTING FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND SAFETY OF JOURNALISTS

We document and denounce acts of aggression against journalists and communicators in the Americas that pretend to silence freedom of expression. Thorough our alerts and urgent actions we have formed a network of organizations and individuals active on advocacy and creating systems of protection of freedom of expression, and safety of journalists offline and online, with the goal of putting an end to this aggression, generating a free and open space for independent journalism and media.

QUALITY JOURNALISM AND FACT CHECKING

We offer training to journalists, communicators and other civil society stakeholders on new investigative techniques and professional journalism, especially on transparency, anti-corruption and cyber security. We combat misinformation by fact checking and verification.

ADVOCACY AND POLICY INITIATIVES

We work on advocacy to achieve that governments and parliaments adopt public policies or legislation that guarantees the protection and promotion of freedom of expression and access to information; in particular, freedom of the press, as a fundamental element of democracy.

For this, we try to bring compliance with the Universal and the Inter American System of Human Rights, and fulfillment of the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

We also give legal advice and accompaniment for local organizations in how to access to the two international systems of Human Rights and how to report progress on SDG 16.

How we do it:

Report on progress on SDG 16 (Voces del Sur)

We support Civil Society to report on fundamental rights on the Universal Periodic Review

Promoting Policy Initiatives

Civil society elections’s monitoring

Thematic hearings at IACHR

Promote social dialogue
