The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights is once again offering our Human Rights Facilitator Training Program. This year we will be taking the program across the province and training YOU to deliver Human Rights learning sessions in your community. If you are passionate about promoting peace and human rights and creating a movement in your hometown to promote respect, dignity and inclusion for all, consider joining us for this training.

During this intensive 5 day program, participants will discuss relevant human rights concerns while exploring how these issues are at play in our communities and what our role can be in affecting positive change. Participants will become familiar with human rights law and international declarations, learn facilitation skills and have an enhanced capacity to become community leaders with human rights awareness. Local guest speakers will compliment participant efforts to guide one another through experiential dialogue based sessions to learn and explore facets of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Righting Relations: YEG Conversation begins...

Righting Relations: Strengthening Adult Education for Social Change

A women-led initiative in partnership with the Catherine Donnelly Foundation

You are invited to participate in a conversation to discuss the needs of low income communities around adult education geared for social change in Edmonton.

Intent on contributing to End Poverty Edmonton, this meeting is for adult educators, community organizers and low income citizens in Edmonton to provide input into the creation of a hub for critical learning, networking and radical social change.

How do we provide adult education that enhances the economic and political literacy of Edmonton’s low income population? How can we Edmontonians work together to meet these needs as well as build our own capacity for adult education and community organizing?

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation has committed to a five year contribution of $2.5 million to help build a national network of adult educators and community organizers committed to social change. 

Edmonton will be one of the lead cities moving this forward, aligning with our commitment to being a Human Rights City.
