Session: Building an Effective Human Rights Committee
All people have the same rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and The U.N. Declaration on Rights. Human rights committees play a critical role in upholding and protecting the rights of people served by organizations. In this workshop, we will explore best practices and provide resources to build and support an effective and diverse human rights committee.
