    This November Sierra Leone will hold its third national election since the end of their civil war. And while the war may be over, the risk of violence remains.

    In the days leading up to, and following the vote, JHR will work with local journalists and media partners to ensure responsible and transparent coverage of the election.

    Given the vital role media plays in setting the tone of an election, our presence could mean the difference between a peaceful election or a return to violence.
