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!

Empowering Indigenous voices in Canadian media


There's no lack of stories that need to be told from northern Ontario's remote Indigenous communities. But what is lacking, are skilled reporters to tell those important stories. 
 
But that changes this week. JHR, in partnership with the Wawatay Native Communications Society, is sending three journalism trainers to work in remote Indigenous communities in northern Ontario. A fourth trainer will start in May.
 
The trainers will live in their host communities for eight months and will provide skills training and mentorship to community members who want to pursue careers in journalism. This training will help build reporting skills in radio, print, and online reporting. Stories produced by community members will be featured through the Wawatay Native Communications Society radio network and print publications and in other Canadian media outlets. 

Meet the new JHR trainers!
