Media Safety Office
Established in 2005 in partnership with the International Federation of Journalists, the Media Safety Office monitors all forms of attacks against the media, be it threats, attacks, intimidation, or killings. NUJP also keeps track of the legal status of journalist killings, and cases seeking to intimidate journalists, such as criminal libel.
Media Workers’ Welfare
With the International Federation of Journalists, NUJP has been conducting trainings and consultations to help colleagues organize and build power in their workplaces. It constantly develops projects that will address the current working conditions of the Filipino working press.
Professional Skills Training
NUJP offers free seminars and workshops on reporting and covering corruption, elections, HIV-AIDS and children’s welfare. Over the years, it has collaborated with the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, International News Safety Institute, Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, and the Norwegian Embassy to conduct these trainings and to develop modules.
Journalism and Trauma
The need to help journalists deal with trauma in the newsroom gave way to the creation of a peer support project with the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma. The program aims to build support networks among journalists and media workers inside media companies.
Journalists’ Orphans Fund
Aiming at helping families of slain journalists move forward as they await justice, NUJP has been sending orphans of slain colleagues to school, from grade school to college. The program has been made possible through the help of groups such as the Australian Media and Entertainment Arts Alliance.
