Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is Canada’s leading media development organization. For the past 16 years, JHR has worked around the world to ensure reporters and citizen journalists have the skills they need to objectively and effectively report on issues affecting their communities. The organization has trained more than 15,650 journalists and journalism students and has worked in 28 different countries. Stories written by JHR and its trained journalists have reached over 65 million people.
JHR’s mission is to ensure everyone in the world is aware of their rights. As a non-profit organization, we do this by training journalists around the world to cover human rights issues ethically and objectively. Currently JHR runs six programs across the globe. These include the Indigenous Reporters’ Program in Canada, a pilot entrepreneurship incubator program in South Africa, and sector-wide programs strengthening the independent media in South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
We live in an era where despots worldwide cry “fake news” at every inconvenient truth. JHR’s work empowers journalists worldwide to fight this trend with facts. JHR has seen that an independent media that serves its democratic purpose is only possible when it is able to sustain itself. Truth and facts matter more than ever in such an environment. Yet it is becoming increasingly difficult for journalists to play their vital democratic role in today’s disrupted and digital age. For this reason, we ask for your support to continue our work helping journalists around the world and here at home -- to hold public figures to account and tell the stories that need to be told.
Lend your voice today and support JHR, because without independent funding, there is not independent media.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to grow and develop our programs worldwide. Support Journalist for Human Rights through our Shared Voices campaign to help mobilize media and strengthen our programs worldwide.
