Justice for Journalists
Justice for Journalists Foundation (JFJ) is a London-based non-governmental organization. The foundation was created in August 2018 by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, founder of the Open Russia pro-democracy movement, an Amnesty International recognized prisoner of conscience and Putin’s most prominent critic, together with his former business partner, philanthropist and member of the Free Russia Forum’s standing committee Leonid Nevzlin.
JFJ funds journalistic investigations into violent crimes against media workers and helps professional and citizen journalists to mitigate their risks. JFJ’s activity consists of three main components:
- Grants for investigating violent crimes against media workers;
- Risk mapping via monitoring, analysing and publicising attacks against media workers;
- Risk management and prevention by organising security and safety trainings for non-English-speaking media workers in our Orkhan Dzhemal Media Safety Academy .
