Why do journalists risk their lives to bring us stories from hotspots around the world? What impact does that coverage have on the places they report on?
Come hear superstar JHR trainer and former Massey Fisher Fellow Mustapha Dumbuya share his experiences working with journalists in South Sudan to hold the SPLA accountable for rape as a weapon of war.
Find out why Al Jazeera assignment editor Owen Watson continues to spotlight human rights stories from datelines worldwide that would otherwise, in the era of Trump, go unnoticed.
Hear Yemeni journalist Khaled Al-Hammadi, a reporter for Alquds Alarabi (London), human rights defender and former laureate with Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, speak about the importance of highlighting human rights and what that means for people on the ground.
Change the channel on the D.C. reality show for one night and open your minds to renowned journalists talking about international news and forgotten crises, how they are underreported, and why it is so vital that Canadian media cover these stories to Canadian and global audiences.
