The after-dinner program, “It’s Different for Us: Women Journalists on Their Stories from the Campaign Trail,” will feature top female reporters discussing the advantages and disadvantages of being a woman journalist – or candidate – in Campaign ’20.

We will be bestowing our highest honor, the William J. Brennan Defense of Freedom Award, to “Besieged Journalists Abroad.” It will be accepted, as a symbol of all such journalists, by Maria Ressa, founder and publisher of The Rappler, who has been prosecuted by the Philippine Government on trumped up charges, and Hatice Cengiz, the fianceé of assassinated WaPo journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
