About Membership

Full Membership

Full membership is drawn from a wide community of journalists, other media and people committed to press freedom.

The Frontline Club is a charity with a mission to support worthy causes such as the Frontline Fund, initiated by Jon Lee Anderson, in response to the murder of Ajmal Nasqshbandi in Afghanistan. The fund raises money for the families of fixers killed or injured while working with the international media.
