Dealing with the media is a crucial aspect of our work as the media plays such a huge role in shaping political debate in the UK and how Arabs are perceived by the British public.
Caabu frequently gives interviews and recommends other expert spokespeople to broadcasting networks. We keep members and supporters informed via our daily digest and actively address any biased coverage in major newspapers and the broadcast media. We are working to motivate news outlets to be more forward-thinking in their coverage and to provide more context and background to key topics.
We are currently undertaking this work without the benefit of a full-time Media Officer. Having the resources to fund such a role would allow us to expand our media activities considerably.
