Rachel Pulfer is the Executive Director for Journalists for Human Rights. Formerly a Canadian Journalism Fellow at Massey College, Rachel is a magazine journalist of 10 years' standing. Her last position was as the U.S. correspondent, editorial board member, and columnist for Canadian Business – Canada's national business newsmagazine.
She currently works as a contributing editor for Corporate Knights, a Toronto-based magazine focused on corporate social responsibility, and Azure, an international design and architecture publication based in Toronto. She has freelanced for publications ranging from The Walrus to Toronto Life, and has been nominated for three National Magazine Awards for feature writing and the editing of editorial packages.
As a journalist, Rachel doesn't like being told what to do or write. But as a humanitarian who grew up in several developing countries, she believes jhr's mission – using powerful pieces of accountability journalism to inform people of their human rights – is an excellent way to put her profession to work for a greater good. She is pleased to be part of making that mission a reality.
