Triumph Over Torture: International Day In Support of Victims of Torture
June 26, 2018
June 26 is The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. This day gives us the opportunity to stand united and remind the world that torture is a cruel violation of human rights. Rehabilitation empowers torture victims to resume as full a life as possible. However, rebuilding the life of someone whose dignity has been destroyed takes time and is the result of long-term material, medical, psychological and social support.
In partnership with Amnesty International Canada the event will include Keynote Speakers, Annual community skit involving service users, counselors and volunteers) titled Medical Ethics: Crazy Dance of a Crazy General, survivors showcasing their artistic perfomance, skills and vending tables of arts/craft, jewelery and products by service users and more perfomances from the community. Lunch will be provided.
Space is limited and registration is required.
Time: 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Venue: Innis Town Hall Theatre
Location: 2 Sussex Avenue Toronto, ON
Categories: Human Rights, Law, Legal
