10TH ANNUAL HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS: AN EVENT THAT RECOGNIZES LOCAL HUMAN RIGHTS HEROES

December 5, 2016
Edmonton, December 1, 2016 − The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights invites the media to join them for their 10th Annual Human Rights Awards and the launch of Ignite Change 2017: A Global Gathering for Human Rights on December 11th, 2016, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the ATB Financial Arts Barn (10330 84 Ave NW).
Held in commemoration of International Human Rights Day, these awards are meant to recognize those in our community who are actively promoting, fulfilling, protecting or educating on human rights, and making our communities a place where all belong, are included and able to participate. Chief Commissioner Marie-Claude of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Mdm. Marie-Claude Landry, Ad.E. will be the event’s guest and keynote speaker.
Every year awards are given out to recipients, who are local human rights champions who are building Edmonton as a human rights city. This year however we will be awarding our first winner from outside of Edmonton in our efforts to recognize Albertans making an impact. This is followed by the Gerald L. Gall Award for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution and has demonstrated excellence in the protection and promotion of human rights in Canada.
Renée Laporte, a Human Rights Champion recipient in 2015, explains what the award means to her,  “When you are an advocate, you face stigma and discrimination. You feel the hate marginalized communities face, and that drives you to work harder to see them have their rights upheld.” She was recognised for her work of over a decade as an educational assistant, inclusion innovator and pioneer in fostering high risk young women.
This year’s awards recipients are
Robert P. Lee
              Gerald L. Gall Award 2016
Paula Kirman
              Human Rights Champion 2016
Ruth Adria
              Human Rights Champion 2016
Kristina De Guzman
              Human Rights Champion 2016
Roy Pogorzelski
              Human Rights Champion 2016
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.

Julie Ali Congratulations to all the award winners and most especially to Mr. Lee who is doing work that hardly any lawyer in Alberta is doing. It takes courage to tilt against the system for the most vulnerable and defenceless citizens in Alberta.

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 byRuth 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 humanrights 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
