UvU* is a working group from and for supporters of exiled and threatened media professionals
The working group, initiated by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), met for the first time in January 2020 in Leipzig. It creates a space for supporters of (potentially) traumatised journalists to exchange ideas about the special challenges they face in the context of this work. Experts from the field of psychosocial health accompany the regular meetings of the working group. In addition, funds can be made available to pay for counselling sessions. Our working language is German.
