The Indigenous Rights Journalism Partnership (IRJP) is a core IC program that centers on building strategic partnerships with non-profit organizations, universities, news corporations and indigenous governments in order to increase local, regional and international awareness and understanding of indigenous affairs and perspectives.
Established in 2016, the IRJP establishes partnerships in the following key areas:
Commissions: You commission IC to author one or more stories for our website. The cost of each commissioned work is determined by the location of the story and the amount of time involved. The fulfillment method of the commission is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Promotions: You pay us to publish one or more of your own stories on our website, including press releases, providing the content meets IC’s editorial standards. As a promoting partner, you would also have the option of ‘owning’ a specific profile page on IC for an additional fee.
Exclusives: You hire IC to review, edit, and decolonize an exclusive story that is destined for another news outlet.
Collaborations: IC teams up with you to produce a jointly-written and edited story or series of stories.
Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
