This site was commissioned by the trustees of Courage (formerly the Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund), dedicated to building support for Edward Snowden, his human rights, his long-term liberty and his right to asylum. We also seek to draw attention to the issues his whistleblowing has raised and support his desire for reform of them.
One of the tasks of the trustees is to oversee the functioning of Courage, which has been set up to raise money for journalistic sources’ legal defence campaigns. Edward Snowden is its first recipient, but he will not be its last. We expect to be supporting more journalistic sources and whistleblowers in the future and we expect to grow as more journalistic sources are nominated as recipients.
