Dawn Lavell Harvard: Access to post-secondary education for Indigenous youth in Ontario

Dawn Lavell Harvard, 2003 Foundation Scholar, contributed to a report which was recently published by Journalists for Human Rights (JHR): Emerging Voices: A Dual Examination into Access to Post-Secondary Education for Indigenous Youth in Ontario.


The report examines the pathways of opportunity and the barriers facing Indigenous students interested in studying journalism or media at a post-secondary level, and what journalism and media programs are doing to develop and implement curriculum on coverage of Indigenous stories (as was recommended in Call to Action #86 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada).

Our congratulations to Dawn Lavell Harvard for also receiving the 2018 Spirit of Barbra Schlifer Award, in recognition of her struggle against the violence experienced by Indigenous women.
