TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2015 /CNW/ - Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) gives a sincere thank you to its wonderful sponsors for their support of the Night for Rights Gala and After Party on October 1, 2015 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto.
Canada's top journalists, media executives, business and political leaders will gather at Night for Rights to recognize journalists from South Sudan to Jordan to Sierra Leone, and illustrate the powerful social and development impact of human rights journalism.
This work would not be possible without the valued support of our extraordinarily generous sponsors and donors.
JHR would like to thank the Toronto Star as Lead Media Sponsor; Accenture and CTV as Partner Sponsors; CBC, Global News and RBC as Gold Sponsors; Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada and The Canadian Press as Silver Sponsors; and Newstalk 1010, Our Forté, Crestview, Steam Whistle and Prince Edward County Wine Association as in-kind sponsors of the evening. JHR would also like to thank TD for supporting them throughout the year.
A free press is something Canadians take for granted, but is a necessary platform for human rights. JHR's work empowers journalists worldwide to cover human rights stories in ways that transform communities and catalyze positive change.
