TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is proud to receive a 2017 Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Award for Excellence in Conservation. The Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Awards, administered by the Ontario Heritage Trust, are prestigious awards that recognize exceptional contributions to heritage conservation, environmental sustainability and biodiversity, and cultural and natural heritage. The award recognized the success of JHR's Indigenous Reporters Program, which aims to improve the quality and number of Indigenous voices in Canadian media.
The Indigenous Reporters Program aims to increase the number of Indigenous journalists and stories in media. It does this by offering in-community training, sending a journalism trainer to a First Nations community. The program further alleviates some of the financial burden of Indigenous journalism students by offering scholarships, and provides hands-on experience for emerging Indigenous journalists by offering internships at mainstream and Indigenous newsrooms.
The program also aims to educate non-Indigenous journalists and journalism students on best practices for reporting on Indigenous communities.
