Daniel Pearl bio
Contact Us

The story of Danny's life and death has touched thousands of people who never knew him. By developing original programs, the Daniel Pearl Foundation hopes to bring light to the world the way Danny did through his stories and music. In that spirit, the Foundation has undertaken several projects in its first year, including:

An annual Music Day celebrating global tolerance on what would have been Danny's 39th birthday. This year's event included over 100 events in 17 countries.
A fellowship that will bring a journalist from Pakistan to work with the Wall Street Journal in Washington, D.C., in partnership with the Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships Program.
A youth-engagement program with teen web site YouthNOISE, including a writing contest on the theme of cross-cultural respect.
A memorial lecture series, featuring journalists and experts in international relations. This year's lecturer was New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman.

Future projects being planned include conferences, children's books, and multinational music recordings.
