Journalists for Human Rights

To followers of The Feed

While I indulge in my creative and quirky writing styles on my blog, I can also turn my serious reporter self on when necessary.

Recently, a fellow CreComm student, Dani Finch, brought up the idea of starting a Journalist for Human Rights chapter at Red River college. The group started meeting just before the Christmas break and even ran a week long food drive in the atrium. jhr RRC members created a Facebook and Twitter page, and I contributed with the creation of the jhr RRC Blog

I urge you to visit the site and get to know more about what the Red River College Chapter (in conjunction with students from The University of Winnipeg) is doing in the community. And of course, read some good responsible journalism.

For more on jhr RRC and quick links to our Facebook and Twitter pages, see here.

What is jhr?

jhr’s (Journalists for Human Rights) goal is to make everyone in the world fully aware of their rights. Creating rights awareness is the first and most necessary step to ending rights abuses.

By mobilizing the media to spread human rights awareness, jhr informs people about human rights, empowering marginalized communities to stand up, speak out and protect themselves.
