With the help of a few intrepid supporters, Reporters Without Borders-USA was founded in 2004 in New York City with the objective to extend the international mission of Reporters sans frontières in the United States. In 2005 RWB-USA moved its work to Washington DC to strengthen the effectiveness of its advocacy, and quickly won a solid reputation in DC as an outspoken defender of freedom of information.
In the United States, Reporters Without Borders is a 501c3 organization carrying out the mission to protect and defend journalists working both internationally and in the United States.
Americans treasure their First Amendment rights, but do not always realize the extent to which freedom of information is at risk globally, and how that affects their own right to be informed.
Thanks to its staff, its board and its volunteering correspondents, RWB-USA plays a central role in the assistance of journalists and in the expansion of our grassroots activities, but also in the communication and the advocacy missions of the whole organization.
