Introducing News Digests from Skylight

We’re trying something new at Skylight: Weekly news digests, posted on our blog, which will gather the articles published in the past week that tell stories that were not sufficiently covered in the mainstream media. Skylight works to change the narrative around human rights and media, and supports other blogs, independent journalists, citizen journalists, community media groups, and independent media organizations that work to do so as well. Check here every week for our recap of the week in human rights and media articles.
