Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian spent 545 days isolated in an Iranian prison, a political hostage unjustly tried and convicted for doing what journalists do across the globe. Now he's free, and the National Press Club threw a welcome home event on March 14 to celebrate his return. The gathering doubled as a way to call attention to the challenges faced by journalists everywhere.
