What an honour it is to join you in this vibrant movement!
I am inspired by Amnesty’s exceptional legacy and deeply grateful for the confidence placed in me by the Board to carry on this important work.
Receiving the Amnesty candle from the remarkable Alex Neve, whose leadership has brought so much change and impacted so many, is particularly heartwarming.
I am thrilled to continue to pursue rights for all in Canada and around the globe— particularly for those whose dignity continues to be so brutally violated through state violence, discrimination, patriarchy, and systemic racism.
As Alex eloquently outlined in his farewell reflections, the challenges ahead are daunting. We are facing a deep crisis of fundamental freedoms globally, and those standing bravely for human rights are more at risk than ever.
