Human Rights Forum
The Human Rights Forum presented by TD has been offered since 2007 as part of GlobalFest's programming to promote diversity, cross cultural respect, and equality in our community. Our annual Human Rights Forum topics are structured around the UNESCO's Coalition of Municipalities against Racism and Discrimination.
Recognized as an excellent platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and practical solutions necessary to address issues of racism and discrimination, the Human Rights Forum presented by TD encourages systemic change across the Canadian community in a positive and safe environment.
