#IStandWithEvan

February 22 @ 5:30 pm EST

The Youngstown Press Club welcomes Wall Street Journal assistant editor Paul Beckett, who is in charge of efforts to free Evan Gershkovich, a Wall Street Journal reporter who was detained in Russia on March 29, 2023, while doing his job as a journalist. Mr. Beckett will speak about Evan, who he is and what’s being done to secure his release. A reception will follow in the Flad Pavilion featuring light refreshments and a cash bar. To further support journalists’ rights, the Youngstown Press Club will make a contribution to the Committee to Protect Journalists, a non-profit organization which promotes press freedom worldwide.

The event will be held on Thursday, February 22 at 5:30pm at the DeYor Performing Arts Center. For more information, call 330-259-9641, or visit the DeYor Performing Arts Center website to purchase tickets.
