North American Regional Association of the World Association for Christian Communication
About the North American Regional Association of WACC
We are from Canada and the USA, a community of professional journalists, media makers, communications officers, academics, theologians, and other media professionals who share a commitment to build a communications environment that is open to all and founded on respect for human dignity.
We have come together because we affirm the Christian Principles of Christian Communication.
As members of the larger WACC global community, we cultivate an awareness of global solidarity, focus on healing the hurts and wounds caused by manipulative and deceptive uses of communications power. We work together to make a difference when it comes to gender inequalities, AIDS, copyright excesses and other urgent issues.
We promote local cultural initiatives and we champion media productions that have grassroots passion, a vision of peace and justice, and innovative style.
Recognizing that our region (Canada and the USA) is rich with various languages: English, Spanish, French and others, we use English as our working language and honor spaces where each of our other languages can flourish.
Our association works with both religious and secular professional communications organizations in order to promote understanding and develop professional skills in regard to advancing democratic communications.
We invite all communications professionals in Canada and the USA to walk with us as we build a world community living in peace based on justice and respect.
