Global News is a media partner with Journalists for Human Rights and, as part of that partnership, is proud to provide a platform for updates on JHR programs.

This second episode of the JHR podcast focuses on Journalists for Human Rights’ work in Jordan.

Hosts Grant McDonald and Mackay Taggart of Global News discuss the radio show “Motassawon,” which means, “We are all equal.”

As well, we look at how Journalists for Human Rights is helping lead the conversation on the rights of migrants and refugees. As a result of this work, the media in Amman is more active and accurate when it comes to covering these stories.

Guests on this episode:

  • Mohammed Shamma, JHR’s Program Manager based in Jordan
  • Hannah Clifford, Senior Programs Manager with JHR
