Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) is a non-profit organization that protects, defends, and empowers public-interest journalism in the 21st century.
The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker is a news website and database that comprehensively documents press freedom incidents in the United States. It is operated by Freedom of the Press Foundation, in partnership with the Committee to Protect Journalists, and a coalition of press freedom organizations.
Our work is the foundation for data-driven information about U.S. press freedom violations, cited in news stories, in legislation and used by advocacy groups.
The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker launched in 2017 as a database of press freedom incidents and has become the primary source of information about such incidents in the United States. We’re looking for a team to assess how the vision and real-world use of the tracker has changed over time and realign the site design and branding accordingly. Here’s what we know we want so far:
We have budgeted $40,000 to $50,000 for this project.
