he Human Rights Forum, presented by UNACanada-Calgary Branch, has been offered since 2007 as part of GlobalFest’s programming to promote diversity, cross cultural respect, and equality in our community. Our annual Human Rights Forum topics are structured around the UNESCO’s Coalition of Municipalities against Racism and Discrimination.
Recognized as an excellent platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and practical solutions necessary to address issues of racism and discrimination, the Human Rights Forum presented by UNAC Calgary encourages systemic change across the Canadian community in a positive and safe environment.
2020 heralded incredible change on a global scale, from the outbreak of the pandemic to the largest civil rights movement in living memory. This year’s forum, originally scheduled for Calgary’s New Central Library in May, will instead take place online over five days in October. The incredible cast of speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
