PEN Canada relies on its annual report to help raise awareness and funds for its programs supporting persecuted writers and defending freedom of expression around the world. The report is sent to the organization’s entire membership, and is made available to sister organizations from 100 countries at PEN ’s international congress. This year’s theme is a reaction to the Canadian government’s move in 2012 to have CRA audit “political” charities. The report also highlights writers and journalists who face oppression around the world. Pro bono design services help PEN Canada’s communication materials reflect the impor - tance of what they do and attract a higher level of sponsors and donors.
