    Tuesday, June 30, 2015 - 12:43

    Happy Canada Day! We mark today by celebrating amazing Canadians, from coast to coast, who are incredible human rights activists.

    Canadians across Canada organize events from flash mobs to book clubs, educate their communities on human rights issues, send solidarity to victims of human rights violations, and tirelessly take action to protect human rights across the world! Thank you! Your voice, your action, your determination can change the world.
