Donations to Journalism Nonprofit Surge After Streep Golden Globes Speech
Donations to the Committee to Protect Journalists surged after actress Meryl Streep used her Golden Globes acceptance speech to urge people to support the organization, Money Magazine reported Monday.
In her lifetime achievement award speech, Streep urged the audience to donate to the group as a means to hold President-elect Donald Trump accountable.
“Our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our Constitution,” Streep said. “So I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood foreign press and all of us in our community to join us in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, and we’re going to need us going forward and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”
