On April 27th, Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) and the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) hosted Shannon Gormley as she explained why it's so important for Canadian journalists to report from the places refugees and migrants are leaving.
An Ottawa Citizen global affairs columnist and freelance journalist, Shannon Gormley was a 2015 recipient of the Fellowship for International Development Reporting. Her fellowship project focused on the vulnerable residents of Kiribati, a country which has become famous for its approach to dealing with rising sea levels and climate change.
AKFC was pleased to present this event in partnership with the CAJ.
