Developing Citizen Workshops

CJN identifies an important theme through our journalism work that needs addressing (like domestic violence, citizenship or access to legal representation).

Then we help develop a workshop around one of these themes in one of our communities that:

  • Actively helps people with their legal matters through consultation with lawyers.
  • Connects stakeholders (like Legal-Aid, Pro Bono and Seri) together with our offices and radio stations.
  • Gives helpful speeches and room for engagement.
  • Opportunities to refer cases to relevant partners.

We then interview the people who attended the event to produce more, in-depth stories around these issues.
