Become a Digital Ambassador!
Social media is completely transforming the media landscape of today and jhr believes that it can be actively used as a means to spread human rights awareness and incite change. As a part of jhr's online community, we need you to consume, share, and encourage the production of rights media by blogging, tweeting, or sharing on Facebook and any other social networking site, stories which have the very real potential to change lives.

Our Digital Ambassadors will ultimately act as champions for human rights in the online world. Responsibilities include:
  • Spreading the word: Share information about jhr's programs and human rights in general by using the various social media tools that you already use on a daily basis. Our Social Media Coordinator will be in touch with you every other week to give you the inside scoop on what's going on at head office and overseas.

  • Leading campaigns: Be at the forefront of our many upcoming engagement, awareness, and fundraising campaigns!

  • Brainstorm your own ideas: We need your creative juices flowing through our organization! Digital Ambassadors keep jhr fresh and innovative by suggesting new ideas and working with us to make them a reality!

Building bridges between Indigenous communities and journalists 

JHR and the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres are partnering on a series of workshops to bring Indigenous communities and journalists together.  

Friendship Centres throughout Ontario will host the workshops, which will provide Indigenous community members and journalists opportunities to discuss challenges they face when working together and identify solutions to improve communication and relationships between the two groups.
 
Workshops will be held in Thunder Bay, Kenora, Sudbury and North Bay from February 27 through March 9. JHR and the OFIFC will also facilitate workshops in Hamilton, London, Ottawa and Toronto later in 2015.
