Happy World Press Freedom Day

Happy World Press Freedom Day! May 3 was first designated in 1993 as a day to celebrate and highlight the crucial role a free press plays in strengthening democracies and fostering development around the world.

To learn more about the day, visit the UN's page. You can also learn more about UNDP programs that support the creation of a free press. I also highly recommend checking out World Press Photo's pictures of the year.
