After a decade, Amnesty International USA will be bringing back an awards ceremony to recognize excellence in human rights reporting and the vital role of a free press. As human rights around the world come under threat and the idea of truth itself is called into question, the role of a free press is more vital than ever. The AIUSA Media Awards will honor excellence in reporting on domestic and international issues within the U.S. press, as well as recognize outstanding student reporting. The Media Awards will take place on April 3rd, 2019 in New York City
