2019 James W. Foley Freedom Awards

  • National Press Club (map)

James W. Foley envisioned a world that respects the dignity and life of each person, regardless of socioeconomic status, cultural background or nationality. His life demonstrated an uncompromising commitment to the freedom of the press and the dignity of each person.

The foundation has previously honored David Bradley, David Rohde, Nadia Alawa, Arwa Damon, Emma Beals, Delphine Halgand, Jen Easterly, CJ Chivers and Malala Yousafzai for their heroic work towards our shared mission.

Our awards dinner is attended by the interested public, US government officials from the White House, returning American hostages, media organizations such as CNN, Twitter & Facebook, journalist NGO’s, educators and students.
