For those who died pursuing the truth.

On June 28, 2018, the United States saw the deadliest attack on journalism in the nation’s modern history, when five Capital Gazette employees were killed in their Annapolis, Maryland newsroom. As we near the first anniversary of that tragedy, legislation will be introduced in Congress to honor fallen journalists by authorizing the Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation (FJM Foundation) to establish a commemorative work on federally owned and administered land in Washington, D.C.

The mission of the Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation is to commemorate America’s commitment to a free press by honoring journalists who have sacrificed their lives in service to that cause.
