Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) has created the Tour for Humanity (T4H), a mobile human rights education center to teach students, educators, community leaders, and front-line professionals about topics of diversity, democracy, and Canadian civic rights and responsibilities. The purpose of T4H is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and take action against hate and intolerance, bullying and to promote justice and human rights.
It is a 30-seat, wheel-chair accessible, state-of-the-art, technologically advanced mobile education centre that presents information on the effects and consequences of hate and intolerance. It provides education on historical events, and focus on how these events are relevant to both Canadian and global perspectives.
The Tour for Humanity was designed to engage Canadians of all ages and backgrounds in discussions relevant to freedom, democracy and human rights. Discussions on events of the past, links to relevant current events and stories of hope and inspiration will all be a part of the experience. Join us for a very powerful, informative and educational afternoon.
Program is tailored for everyone (ages 11+)
