About this speaker

After speaking on a panel at the UN opening of the World Press Photo Exhibition in New York in August 2012, Sullivan initiated the creation of A Day Without News to focus attention on, and take steps to address, the targeting of journalists in armed conflict. The campaign launched in February 2013 with the support of renowned members of the media community, including CNN's chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, and several photographers who have spent time on the front line in conflict zones, such as Don McCullin, Tom Stoddart and Lynsey Addario.
