Mission

The Freedom of Expression Institute (FXI) was established in 1994 to protect and foster the rights to freedom of expression and access to information, and to oppose censorship and eliminate inequalities in accessing and disseminating information and knowledge in South Africa and beyond. The Institute was formed from a merger of three organisations: The Campaign for Open Media , the Anti-Censorship Action Group and the Media Defence Trust.
