Fantastic news that @Princeton grad student Xiyue was freed in a prisoner exchange with Iran to reunite with his family after a 3 year ordeal. We must never give up on those unjustly jailed, even by the harshest regimes @PENamerica https://www.princeton.edu/news/2019/12/07/statement-president-eisgruber-release-xiyue-wang?fbclid=IwAR1uSemUnmoQBb8JPa6nHodYoV_f1gUgO9AgEQ_MY0I2oiXY9Tbbxm6imDY
No. This is wrong & @PENamerica will be working ALL of 2020 to push back on gov't efforts to silence critics, chill dissent, criminalize protesters, & limit the beautiful constitutional rights we all have to use our voices to speak out. #freespeech2020 https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/04/us/politics/barr-police.html
Communities that have been underserved by local media are those most affected by its decline. On 12/10, PEN America will be hosting a conversation about the media ecosystem in Detroit with local journalists. FREE and open to the public: https://bit.ly/2qeiYKz. #localnews
