What are the best practices for media reporting on child welfare?
On Feb. 10, 2017, we invited 25 people — including youth, advocates, journalists and government representatives — to discuss how media can improve the way we report on child welfare.
Many describe the child-welfare system as broken and stuck. Indigenous families are hugely over-represented due to the ongoing impacts of colonization. Media is seen as a barrier to positive change. That’s why, for three years, The Discourse worked with youth, parents and others connected to the system to deepen and improve reporting.
