ABOUT JHC

The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights envisions a world that manifests a culture of peace and human rights in which the dignity of every person is respected, valued and celebrated.  We work to advance a culture of peace and human rights through educational programs and activities, community collaboration and relationship building guided by the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Based on the understanding that considering the world through a human rights lens is key to empowering citizens to respond to the ills in our society and our world – from issues like discrimination and bullying to poverty, war and genocide – the John Humphrey Centre is dedicated to human rights education in Edmonton and Beyond through innovative, experiential and transformative programming and events that foster a sense of dignity, responsibility and justice.
Empowered by the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, adopted on December 19, 2011, the John Humphrey Centre, having begun its work in 1998, continues its mandate, as reinforced by Article 1 of the Declaration:
1. Everyone has the right to know, seek and receive information about all human rights and fundamental freedoms and should have access to human rights education and training.
2. Human rights education and training is essential for the promotion of universal respect for and observance of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, in accordance with the principles of the universality, indivisibility and interdependence of human rights.
3. The effective enjoyment of all human rights, in particular the right to education and access to information, enables access to human rights education and training.
Our education philosophy is based on the belief that all education needs to be based in a space of Collective Wisdom – we all have something to bring to the table and it is through the harnessing of our collective stories that we are able to achieve a greater understanding of difference, diversity and human rights. 
We focus our programming on learning in a format that involves experiential, transformative and applied learning that reinforces an individual’s understanding of dignity and expands their awareness and understanding through engagement with others. True LEARNING comes through experience and engagement with others and our goal is to provide learning that is transformational and engages the learner in the outcomes.  Our approach to educational programming is specifically designed to empower participants to build their active voice and citizenship and apply their learning to address needs they identify in their community.

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
(Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)


Congratulations Ruth Adria for winning one of these human rights awards. Standing up to the big bullies in government and the rest of society so that the rights of all citizens are respected is fundamental to the work done by Ruth and all other award winners.
Our most vulnerable citizens have no voice in our society.
These award winners spoke.
They spoke for those without anyone-the children in the child welfare system, the seniors and handicapped in continuing care and the health care system. Without such human rights advocates we could not have learned about the over 700 children who have died in the system in Alberta or the harmed, abused, and dead seniors in the continuing care system. Thank you to all of them. #Ruth Adria, # JHC, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights (JHC), #ElderAdvocatesofAB
I have made a spaghetti sauce which is a great achievement since we were living on sandwiches in a camping style that developed after older boy left for his apprenticeship program.
When he left 90% of our food budget decreased and it seems foolhardy to make meals.
This was a mistake.
We have been eating random meals and younger boy is very thin.
So I have restarted meal making again. It helps that the food monster is coming home for Xmas and will want real meals and not Subway food.
I have put the sauce on the stove. I put the stove off so I don't burn another meal.
Now that I have taken care of supper (we ate on the fly for breakfast and lunch) plus even cut a pineapple in chunks for younger boy's snack, I am going to listen to music.
If I have any energy left, I will head over to the Villa Marguerite to find Rebecca. We have a movie she can look at, we will put the fireplace on and then we will do whatever stuff we do such as reading while she is here. It would have been useful to go earlier but I am not known for being early up.
I will have to make the shepherd's pie on Monday. Tomorrow I am going to the human rights award with Ruth Adria and Sue.
