Legal Defense Fund Auction
You dont want to miss the opportunity to see the fabulous items available for bid and to network with hundreds of journalists all for a great cause! Proceeds from this event will go to SPJs Legal Defense Fund, a unique account that financially supports journalists waging legal battles to defend the freedom of speech and the press.
Both the live and silent auctions will take place during the Excellence in Journalism 2012 conference.
You can help fight important legal battles that protect the First Amendment by contributing to SPJ's annual LDF auction. Journalism and campaign memorabilia, original artwork, autographed books and tear sheets and newsroom T-shirts always sell well. Get creative!
