Migrant Media Monitoring Project Webinar

    Join us on International Migrants Day – Monday, December 18, 2023 at 2:00 PM ET – for a free webinar presenting the findings from the inaugural North American Migrant Media Monitoring Project.

    The report presents easy-to-use data on bias, language use, voice and subject representation, along with other demographic information useful for reporting on and engaging in issues of migration. Media sources from both the United States and Canada were monitored, providing a broader view of migration in North America.

    The study was conduced by the North American chapter of the World Association for Christian Communication (WACC-NA) in cooperation with WACC Global and other organizations. Following the time-tested methodology of the Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP), which reports globally on the role of women in media, the North American effort follows similar studies conducted by the European, African, Caribbean and South American chapters of WACC.

    Balanced and ethical reporting matters in the coverage of the stories of the migrants from their country of origin to the host country. The voice and agency of the migrants themselves matter. As a faith-based organization, WACC-North America intends to share these findings with our respective denominations, various interfaith organizations, and advocacy groups engaged in work with the migrants. These evidence-based findings provide an advocacy tool for those involved in activist work, offer a practical resource for the various denominational migrant work, and help urge policy-makers to come up with humane solution to the plight of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, while addressing the root causes that continue to displace people from their country of origin. The findings offer us a rich resource to observe the International Migration Day on December 18, and the events preceding and following the day.
