New York Press Club members and friends:
We are committed to working for a free and open press. For that reason, the New York Press Club is joining more than 50 other news and journalists' organizations, in filing a Second Circuit amicus curiae brief, in a case that could establish a First Amendment right to film and otherwise record police in public spaces (there is currently no such Second Circuit decision recognizing that right). With the First Amendment being challenged and blurred at every turn, we, the amici, believe it is important to set this precedent in the Second Circuit.We will keep you posted on progress.

Thank you to all who attended the 24th annual New York Press Club Foundation Conference on Journalism at NYU! We hope you enjoyed the conference.
The family of the late New York Press Club Consulting Director Peter Bekker
has created a scholarship fund in Peter's name. The New York Press Club
Foundation's Peter O.E. Bekker Memorial Scholarship Fund will benefit the next generation of journalists, for whom Peter cared deeply. Public donations are now being accepted. Thank you.
