Internews is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to empower local media worldwide to give people the news and information they need, the ability to connect and the means to make their voices heard. They have released a web resource, “Speak up, speak out: A toolkit for reporting on human rights issues”, which tackles issues such as gender violence, human trafficking and workforce exploitation.
This toolkit is both a human rights reference guide and a workbook for journalists and civic activists who want to improve their ability to report on human rights issues in a fair, accurate, and sensitive way.
The free PDF download of the guide is available in English through this link: http://www.internews.org/sites/default/files/resources/Internews_SpeakUpSpeakOut_Full.pdf. French, Arabic and Spanish-language translations are planned for the future.
