GlobalFest’s Annual Human Rights Forum is aiming to break the cycle of hate

 CALGARY, AB – This September, GlobalFest will continue to support the city of Calgary in the commitment to combat racism and end discrimination. The Annual Human Rights Forum will be held in Calgary on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

The Human Rights Forum, presented by UNACanada-Calgary Branch, has been recognized as a platform that allows for experiences, knowledge and practical solutions to be shared to encourage systemic change. This year’s Forum will explore hate from several perspectives, including those who have been impacted by, been victims of, have incited and have participated in hate-based organizations.

Discussions of diversity, cross-cultural respect and equality in our community will be kicked off by the keynote presentation with Daryl Davis at 7:15 a.m. The new one-day format of the Human Rights Forum will be continued with a panel of speakers, all of whom will share their own experiences with hate.

Join Daryl Davis, TM Garret, Minoo Homily, Anush Margaryan, Elizabeth Moore and Doug White as stories of strength, reconciliation and resolution are shared to aid in changing attitudes and actions attributed to the cycle of hate. Tickets are available at https://globalfest.ca/human-rights-forum/.
