Press Uncuffed bracelets are made by journalism students at the University of Maryland and their professor – Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Dana Priest – to raise money to free imprisoned journalists around the world. The bracelets bear the names of nine of them. Proceeds from the effort will benefit the Committee to Protect Journalists. CPJ provides emergency assistance to journalists facing threats around the world and advocates for journalists imprisoned and attacked in reprisal for their work.
You can order them in the IRE store, just follow this link: Buy a Bracelet.
The bracelets are made in Memphis, Tennessee with LuciteLux® clear acrylic to remind us of the importance of transparency of information. They come in four sizes.

Pressuncuffed.org seeks to encourage and promote rigorous student reporting, scholarly research and debate on the role of, and obstacles to, independent journalism in the United States and abroad. Our website features reporting by University of Maryland students about press freedom in the United States and abroad. It also offers resources to instructors elsewhere who may want to teach classes or hold workshops on this theme. In the near future, this site will become a place for student work from around the country and abroad.
