We are proud to welcome onboard Article 19. Since 1987, they have been on a mission to create a world where the public feel able to freely express themselves without fear, and where they can actively engage in public life, without discrimination. Working in partnership with nearly 100 organisations in more than 60 countries around the world and with over 100 employees worldwide, Article 19 work closely alongside the United Nations to drive local change and bridge the gap between communities.
With support from regular contributors, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, they monitor threats against freedom of expression happening around the world. By developing a strategic approach to accountability, they are continuing to fight for the protection of human rights, and we are delighted to be able to provide them further support to fulfil their mission.
“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

We are very excited to be partnering with such a great organisation and look forward to the coming months with them.
