Preparations are well underway for our 2018 Human Rights Conference. We are writing to urge you to register delegates before the August 31, 2018 deadline. In 2016 our theme was “From Moment to Movements: Social Change through Human Rights Activism” and 2 years later with all that is happening in the world and right here in Canada we need to pick up where we left off.
This year’s conference will allow delegates to pick workshops from a variety of themes, ranging from Social media, recognizing our own biases, self-care and learning from our history along with much more. Our conference will be an opportunity for delegates to take the action items from the Equity Survey that have been presented at Canadian Council and bring them back to the locals and find joint ways to get them implemented. This will also allow the delegates an opportunity to interact with members of the Advisory panel that will be overseeing the implementation of the action items. There will be a range of speakers from both the broader community and Unifor activists. One of which Activists, is Serge Dupont who will be speaking on the work being done in Quebec alongside the Standing Quebec Regional Equity Committees. We will be able to have more intimate conversations on concreate actions we are taking as a union and the next steps to build a world where we “Give every human being the rights we claim for ourselves”.
