JHR releases report on access to ON post-secondary for Indigenous youth

January 23, 2019

Journalists for Human Rights has released Emerging Voices, a report that investigates access to postsecondary access for Indigenous youth in Ontario as well as the role of journalism schools in implementing TRC Call to Action 86. “The Emerging Voices report by Journalists for Human Rights prompts a lot of important questions which I hope leads to discussions and action when it comes to improving access to post-secondary education in journalism for Indigenous youth in this province,” said report contributor Willow Fiddler. The study seeks to better understand the pathways of opportunity and/or barriers facing Indigenous students interested in studying journalism or media at the post-secondary level in ON. It also examines what journalism and media programs in the province are doing to develop and implement curriculum on coverage of Indigenous stories. NationTalkEmerging Voices (report) (ON)
