I will be speaking at the Raoul Wallenberg Day High School Student Conference in Winnipeg on Monday January 18th 2010.
Community Relations is working with Gray Academy students to develop the annual Raoul Wallenberg Day High School Student Conference. The theme for this year’s conference is Human Rights in Iran. Keynote Speaker will be Hon. Irwin Cotler, renowned human rights activist and former Minister of Justice for Canada. Speakers will include: Iranian human rights lawyer, former Iranian prisoner of war, a film by an underground Iranian journalist/documentarist on human rights abuses, and a specialist in advocacy and messaging. The conference will take place at the Shaarey Zedek synagogue. Gray Academy students have already invited students from various independent schools to join them.
