A journalist at WikiLeaks, the Internet-based publishing organisation which makes headlines around the world by releasing suppressed information about corporate, government and military corruption and misconduct.

Sarah is also the Acting Director of the Courage Foundation, an international organisation that fundraises for the legal and public defence of journalistic sources and campaigns for the protection of truthtellers and the public’s right to know generally.

Harrison gained international recognition when she took a flight with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and remained with him for months in Russia whilst working as part of the WikiLeaks team that rescued him from U.S. persecution and advised on his asylum application to Russia.

Though a British citizen, Harrison’s lawyers have advised her not to return home following her courageous work with Snowden, due to the U.K.’s extremely broad anti-terror laws.

Formerly with the Centre for Investigative Journalism and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Harrison joined WikiLeaks in 2010, before the publication of the Afghan War Diary.

Since then, she has worked on WikiLeaks' publications, including the U.S. diplomatic cables, The Iraq War Logs and The Spyfiles which detail the global surveillance industry, amongst many others.

Harrison is an expert in media affairs, from source protection to politically controversial publishing.

Through her journalistic work at WikiLeaks and having worked with some of the world’s most prominent dissidents and information activists, she is particularly knowledgeable in issues surrounding whistleblowing, freedom of information, surveillance and asylum.
