Spotlight Child Welfare Collaborative – The Tyee

Background of the organization 

Spotlight: Child Welfare is a collaborative journalism project hosted by The Tyee and piloted by The Discourse — independent media organizations. It brings journalists, youth, parents and advocates together to improve media coverage of the so-called “child welfare” system. 


Project description 

Funding will contribute to this collaborative journalism project, which is a response to calls from youth and parents for more responsible coverage. It will further support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 84 to ensure that media “be properly reflective of the diverse cultures, languages and perspectives of Aboriginal Peoples.”
