On April 30, 2014, The Ridenhour Prizes, co-sponsored by The Nation Institute and The Fertel Foundation, awarded Edward Snowden and Laura Poitras with The Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling at a ceremony in Washington, DC. 

Mr. Snowden's attorneys originally told The Ridenhour Prizes that they preferred that the event not be streamed or recorded, and that is why the MC was asked to make a statement during the ceremony. We are pleased that Mr. Snowden's attorneys have now agreed to allow us to post his complete remarks, which feature Snowden, Poitras, and an introduction and moderated conversation with journalist and author James Bamford.
