Do you have a personal story related to human rights?‏

Help write the story of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights—by sharing yours.
Do you have a personal story related to human rights? Have members of your family, your ancestors, or people in your community had an experience of discrimination, freedom, or opportunity that needs to be shared?
Your experiences can help shape the permanent exhibitions and public programs of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Your story will become part of our archive of oral histories so that others can learn from your experiences.
The Museum is traveling across Canada to gather your stories. At each of the facilitated roundtable gatherings, you are invited to offer your input, share your story, listen to other people’s stories, and learn about the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Public roundtables take place during the evenings, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The roundtables are open to the public, however you must reserve a place to ensure that you will be accommodated.
I thought you'd be interested in the Toronto area story-gathering meetings for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, as detailed below. If you are interested in participating, please RSVP at and you will be put on the list!
