EFF is pleased to announce that our legal director and general counsel, Cindy Cohn, will be honored as a champion of the First Amendment by the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California Chapter.
Cindy is one of a dozen recipients of this year’s James Madison Award honoring local journalists, organizations, and others who fight for access to government information and promote the public’s right to know. SPJ singled out Cindy’s litigation and oversight of First Amendment and open government cases, like the NSA spying on Americans’ communications.
Cindy and the other award winners will be honored March 15 at the City Club of San Francisco. Congratulations Cindy!
