Welcome to our newly updated website!

Journalists for Human Rights (JHR), is a nationwide organization whose primary focus is rights based advocacy through the mobilization of media. Through dedicated student communities across the country, JHR aims to raise awareness and alleviate human rights issues at the municipal, federal, and international level. Based out of Toronto, JHR has achieved great success in its many human rights projects; from South Sudan to Jordan to Northern Canada! The University of Calgary is privileged to have its own JHR chapter which dates back to 2002.

This blog will serve as the organization’s primary medium for articles and editorials. We will also try to post about events and keep you informed as much as possible!
