(Calgary, AB – August 3, 2016) – On August 3, The Federal Government of Canada is set to release details of the highly anticipated Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The inquiry is meant to shed light on issues surrounding the abnormally high instances of crimes and violence committed against Canada’s Indigenous female population, and serve as a stepping stone into finding solutions to combat these pressing concerns. The issues surrounding the Inquiry will be discussed at GlobalFest’s 2016 Human Rights Forum presented by TD.

The Human Rights Forum presented by TD is a free to attend panel discussion held at the Calgary Public Library’s John Dutton Theatre and has been offered as a part of GlobalFest’s programming since 2007. 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.
