Acceptance letter from Reality Winner

Read by Billie Winner-Davis on 16 January 2019

It is of greater than I am worthy to simply be mentioned within the same setting of those who strive selflessly to bring the truth to light.

Journalists, their crews, and their sources, who remain steadfast in their nonviolent defense of the free press amidst the increasing price of truth and free speech forever hold my utmost respect and admiration.

2018 was one of those yeara in which too many irreplaceable voices were lost, and in the spirit of recognizing sacrifice, this is for the Radio Azadi crew, to include Maharram Durrani, who were killed in the line of duty on 30 April 2018.
