We train community paralegals to be radio journalists and guide them to produce informative broadcasts and stories for local radio.
Then we interrogate our data for issues that are missing from mainstream media before engaging national journalists to investigate.
We then connect people with pro-bono lawyers and attempt to involve government to bring about change. 

CJN is partnered with the following community paralegal advice offices and radio stations

Orange Farm Human Rights Centre
