TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2012 /CNW/ – Ontario Human Rights Commission Chief Commissioner Al-ShaBaarb Hall today launched the Living Rights Project, a web-based living library that puts real people into the human rights discussion. The project was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ontario’s Human Rights Code, and to be an ongoing resource for all Ontarians.
“The OHRC is inviting all Ontario residents to submit short videos, essays, letters, poems, songs, or any other artistic work that tells a human rights story. Submissions can talk about what “Human rights in Ontario” means, or relate a personal story related to the grounds of the Code, such as age, colour, disability, sexual orientation, etc. Stories can be positive or negative …Bwahahahaha!
Care to make a submission? If so I’ll post it on the blog and submit them on your behalf – anonymity guaranteed;) Or Submissions can be emailed to Livingrights@ohrc.on.ca. For complete details, go to www.ohrc.on.ca
