“Hand in Hand Together we Stand”

Torch of Dignity Relay

Sunday, August 28th- Winnipeg, MB


    Hello Fellow Manitobans,

   You’re invited!

To our 7th annual Torch of Dignity Relay, and a free family event hosted by Manitobans for Human Rights on Sunday, August 28th at Central Park! Each year our goal is to sign up 100 volunteers to participate in our Torch of Dignity Relay representing human rights and human dignity.

Our organization works to ensure that every person in the Province of Manitoba knows their human rights that are enshrined in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights that was proclaimed on December 10, 1948. “The document allows the inherent dignity of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world” (United Nations).

     This year we are celebrating, “Hand in Hand Together we Stand”, representing each Manitoban imagining a world in which human rights and human dignity are respected and valued. Activities start at Central Park at 10am with the Torch of Dignity Relay, followed by messages from our political leaders, human rights speakers, entertainment, and throughout the day a community village will feature artisans, career, and resource booths. There will also be invited food trucks on site if you get hungry.

      New this year will be our multicultural community village! That will feature artisans, career resources, and community resources. Purchasing a booth is a great opportunity to network with hundreds of participants that attend the Torch of Dignity Relay each year. If interested in purchasing a booth please use our eventbrite registration link: click here
