6th Annual Torch of Dignity Relay

“Spark the Change”

 November 21, 2021 – Winnipeg, MB

We would like to invite you to our annual Torch of Dignity Relay event this fall, promoting the 30 Articles of the United Nations of Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Manitobans for Human Rights is  again attempting to do a virtual event showcasing Manitobans in a final edited cut on November 21, 2021.

Sponsored by Manitobans for Human Rights and the Canada Summer Jobs Program, this relay represents all peoples uniting to promote diversity, inclusion, and equality. This year’s theme “Spark the Change”, represents each Manitoban imagining a world in which human rights and human dignity are respected and valued. Each individual can challenge themselves to make a change. It only takes a spark of inspiration!

To support this year’s campaign, we are asking your organization to register as a virtual relay participant. We will, with safety protocols in place, visit your organization to take a video, and together we will choose what Universal Declaration of Human Rights article(s) relate to your organization. Other ways to support would be to take a selfie and tell us what spark inspired you to make a change on our facebook, instagram or twitter. Each post will be shared and may be included in the final Torch of Dignity Relay video.

The Torch of Dignity Relay is free to the public. People can also support human rights learning by making a donation to Canada Helps. For more information, visit www.mhri.ca.

Manitobans for Human Rights is a registered charity, non-profit organization that promotes human rights learning to all Manitobans.
