The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker was founded in 2017 by Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Committee to Protect Journalists, in partnership with nearly two dozen media and advocacy groups. As a repository for press freedom aggressions in the United States, it documents assaults and arrests of journalists, the search, seizure or damage of their equipment, and subpoenas, border stops and denials of access, among other incidents.

The Tracker’s data informs journalism, advocacy and legal action across the country. Our important work depends on your support.
