      Deputy Assistant Secretary of State
      for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor
      Jane Zimmerman traveled to San Salvador
      on April 29 to participate in the
      launch of a regional Journalism Security
      Hub, in conjunction with World Press
      Freedom Day (May 3). The new hub,
      established through a Memorandum of
      Understanding among El Salvador?s Catholic
      University, implementing partner IREX, and
      the Department of State, will provide
      training to journalists in
      El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras on
      online journalism and how to work
      safely in dangerous environments. The hub
      will be located on Catholic University?s
      campus in San Salvador.

      .

      The Department of State has committed
      $1 million to the Journalism Security
      Training Hub program. The hubs will
      provide real-time support to journalists
      who receive death threats, are under
      surveillance, are jailed, or when they
      or their family members are kidnapped.
