The Freedom of Expression Tribute

The Freedom of Expression Foundation Tribute acknowledges remarkable efforts to promote free speech, often in connection with current affairs. Tributes are bestowed when someone deserves them, without any constraints on their number. Each Tribute is accompanied by a crystal vase, and a sum of money.
