Daniel Ellsberg was a legend. His leak of the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times in 1971 led to the 20th century’s most important Supreme Court case for press freedom, sparked a series of events that culminated in resignation of President Richard Nixon, and ultimately accelerated the end of the Vietnam War.
We were so proud he co-founded Freedom of the Press Foundation 2012 and sat on our board of directors ever since.
The Ellsberg family, who surrounded him in his final days, have asked we accept donations in his honor, knowing we will do everything in our power to carry his torch in the years to come.
We will miss our dear friend terribly. Here is how we will use your donation to further Daniel's indelible legacy.
