Beyond Labels – 2017 Human Rights Symposium

Labels help define us and stay connected to who we are. Canada’s human rights laws are based on formal grounds, or labels, that define our unique combination of characteristics – our gender, our religion, our disability, our sexual orientation, our race. These labels have been embraced by many as a call to action for groups who claim these identities. Yet more and more, people are rejecting these labels. Is it time to focus on what unites us instead of what divides us? https://eventsystempro.com/chrc/registration/&lang=en
