“A Filipino journalist who stands at 5 foot 2 but stands taller than so many of us in her courage and personal sacrifice for the cause of telling the truth.” – Amal Clooney

“We’re in the last two minutes of democracy, globally. I think there’s far more at stake in the world than my freedom or my fate. Is this the tipping point for democracy? Or the other way — the tipping point for fascism?” – Maria Ressa

Celebrated around the world for her commitment to free expression, human dignity and democratic government, journalist Maria Ressa has spent decades speaking truth to power and challenging corruption. The recipient of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, Ressa has had multiple arrest warrants filed against her for her reporting on the authoritarian administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Her new book How to Stand Up to a Dictator tells the story of how democracy dies by a thousand cuts and how social media is killing our freedoms.
