Speak Up – Korerotia

“Speak Up – Kōrerotia” – a radio show centred on human rights issues. Encouraging discussion on human rights issues prevalent in both Canterbury and New Zealand, Speak Up – Kōrerotia offers a forum to promote the issues facing New Zealanders, providing a voice to affected communities.

Engaging in conversations around human rights issues in our country, each show covers a different human rights issue with guests from or working with the affected communities. Analysing and asking questions of the realities of life in Canterbury and New Zealand allows Speak Up – Kōrerotia to cover the issues that often go untouched!

Discussing the hard-hitting topics, Speak Up – Kōrerotia wishes to encourage listeners to reflect on the issues covered – be it issues listeners are already engaged in, have a passing knowledge of, or no knowledge at all. In our busy modern lives it is rare to have an uninterrupted hour where you can discuss powerful and important experiences and opinions, and Speak Up – Kōrerotia  provides this platform to express and share opinions about those inherently important topics.

Hosted by Sally Carlton, the show brings key issues to the fore and provides space for guests to “Speak Up” and share their thoughts and experiences.
