NCRA Equity Committee Reading Group September Discussion

Oct 24, 2014 by 42 Fish

The NCRA Equity Comittee has a Reading Group which meets bimonthly onair to discuss member suggested materials.


September was hosted by CJMP 90.1FM in Powell River.

Reading Materials can be found below:

First an interview on NonDefensive Communication in this August episode of WINGS: Sue Supriano, host of Steppin' Out of Babylon interviews Sharon Ellison, communications Counselor - website 

This link is to a 2 page pdf with great summery info on Non Defensive Communication 

This link takes you to a summary of Glen Singleton's Guide to Courageous Conversations about Race.

These 'rules' he suggests are applicable to any kind of challenging conversations not just ones about race. Again it's about communicating with other humans.

Finally a pdf of Ten Principals for approaching social justice issues through the arts. They are from a paper about using arts education to teach social justice issues however I feel the points are useful in many work environments outside of the classroom. Whether we are working on a documentary, a marathon, an episode, or just thinking about our work in the station, these ten points are good reminders of things to keep in mind or ask yourself throughout the work.

When we meet, I thought we might discuss some of our stations policies around communication, discipline, and enforcing rules or running meetings and how some of these communication methods have/could be implemented. CJMP policies can be found on our website.

We Are Still Here

Dec 31, 2013 by 42 Fish

This documentary was made by Devin Pielle with assistance from Shelby George, Courtney Harrop, Emma Bell and Zoë Ludski. It is part of a national project called Resonating Reconciliation.

We Are Still Here reflects the stories of 6 Tla'Amin survivors and 2 community members among many, fighting for language revitalization.

Resonating Reconciliation is a project that engages community radio to help reconcile all Canadians with the history of Indian Residential Schools, to help build grassroots skills among community-based broadcasters in respectful reporting on the ongoing legacy of Indian Residential Schools, and provide a lasting record of survivors’ experiences.

For more information on this project and to hear other documentaries in the series please visit the NCRA website.

These stories may trigger intense emotions for some audience members. If you are in crisis, and need emotional support, please call the 24-Hour National Crisis Line: 1-866-925-4419
