DO THE RIGHTS THING: National Human Rights Policy Forum

 

 

DO THE RIGHTS THING: National Human Rights Policy Forum December 3, 2019. 

 

Save the date!

 

What are my human rights obligations as an employer or service provider under the new Accessible Canada Act? What are my rights under the Optional Protocol of the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities?

 

Join us in Ottawa at the Shaw Centre on December 3, 2019 for DO THE RIGHTS THING: An Intersectional Approach to Human Rights!

You can look at our agenda here

You can register before November 18th, 2019 at 05:00 pm (EST) here.

 

As part of our Do The Rights Thing project funded by the Department of Women and Gender Equality (WAGE), we invite employers, human rights organizations, women with disabilities/Deaf women, and other stakeholders to learn about what can be done to address systemic barriers to services and employment faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women.

 

This national Human Rights Policy Forum will also be an opportunity for participants to learn about the Optional Protocol of the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Optional Protocol establishes an individual complaints mechanism for the Convention, but what does this really mean for women with disabilities and Deaf women?

 

Plan to join us and our project partners ARCH Disability Law Center, British Columbia Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS), Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) and Table des Groupes de Femmes de Montréal (TGFM) on December 3rd for this important event!
