National Press Photographers Foundation

The National Press Photographers Foundation provides education and advocacy for the rights of visual journalists and freedom of the press.


The National Press Photographers Foundation is a critical part of the press freedom landscape in America. Photographers are often on the front lines of conflict at home and abroad and the National Press Photographers Association works to ensure they can do their work free from threat and intimidation.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the National Press Photographers Foundation’s legal advocacy on behalf of journalists and their work to educate journalists about their rights and their safety. NPPF is an important organization in the press freedom landscape and this grant will help support their ongoing work in the field at a time when threats against the press are a regular occurrence.
