Ford Hall Forum First Amendment Award cocktail reception and forum with honoree Marty Baron, editor of The Washington Post and former editor of The Boston Globe. The First Amendment Award was created in 1981, to honor those individuals and organizations that demonstrate extraordinary commitment to promoting and facilitating the thoughtful exercise of our right to freedom of expression. The Forum honors Baron for his powerful and fearless defense of the First Amendment. His relentless pursuit of the truth over his storied career, and his stalwart defense of journalists especially in these harrowing times for the Fourth Estate, have resulted in impactful and important journalism, with implications for years to come.
