Aboriginal Media Partnership Project

 

Is there is fair and accurate reporting of Aboriginal issues?
How do you respond to what you see or hear in the media?
Would you like to know how to share your story?

 

The Aboriginal Commission on Human Rights & Justice (ACHR&J) conducted the Aboriginal Media Partnership Project. In the first component of this one-year project, we conducted research on the how mainstream media reports on Aboriginal issues and events. We will offered workshops and training to individuals and communities on how to make Aboriginal issues heard by media outlets and how to respond to the media when its reporting raises concerns. This project will result in greater collaboration and communications between targeted media organizations and the Aboriginal community for enhanced reporting on Aboriginal issues.
