The Citizen Justice Network (CJN) is an award-winning media innovation from the Wits Centre for Journalism. We build journalism capacity for paralegals to develop stories on social justice issues in under-reported areas.
We provide technology, editorial guidance and connect them with local community radio stations so they can broadcast their stories in African languages. We then bridge this rural journalism with the mainstream media and bring these untold stories to a wider public through podcasts, national radio stations and websites.
This journalism feeds directly into identifying issues where the public needs legal assistance and contact with government and arranging these stakeholder engagements.
