We are an organization dedicated to promoting the values of free speech and free speech on an international and domestic scale by stimulating high standards of ethical journalistic behavior. Some of the ways that we promote this behavior is by educating our community on the SPJ Code of Ethics that all journalists must follow, holding virtual and in-person panel discussions that feature a diverse number of journalists, and organizing trips to Washington D.C. so that we as future journalists can be educated on what it means to report freely and accurately.
