Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) is a community-based, non-profit organization serving immigrant and refugee women and their young children since 1975. We reach out to barriered and vulnerable immigrants and refugees with programs designed to help women progress and contribute in the Canadian society.
REFUGEES IN THE MEDIA
How does the media report on refugees and immigration? The Discourse Media wanted to go deeper. They partnered with PIRS and Options Community Services.
In June 2018, they met with a group of refugees and asylum seekers to take a closer look. How are refugees covered in the media? What’s missing when the media covers these stories? How can refugees talk to the media, so their real story comes out?
The result is a tool kit for refugees and journalists. To find out more, click here.
Congratulations to the PIRS team taking part in the Scotiabank 2018 run. Well done!
