WHAT WE DO
Empowering journalists to cover human rights stories objectively and effectively.
Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is Canada’s leading media development organization. We train journalists to report on human rights and governance issues in their communities. When the media puts a spotlight on human rights, people start talking about the issues and demanding change.
A strong, independent media is a referee between governments and citizens. When human rights are protected, governments are more accountable and people’s lives improve.
