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.
