St.Amant represented at Torch of Dignity Relay
- August 8, 2017
On Monday, August 7, Manitobans for Human Rights held the Torch of Dignity Relay. Cities around the world held relays to spread the message of human rights and human dignity. This year’s relay was in the historic Kildonan Park and proceeded down Main St. to the Oodena Celebration Circle at the historic Forks site.
Dustin, who is supported in Community Services, participated in the relay representing St.Amant and was excited to carry the torch for 200 M. St.Amant was one of over 50 organizations invited to participate.
Manitobans for Human Rights is a non-profit, non-partisan association that has two goals in mind. The first is to promote Human Rights learning throughout the Province of Manitoba, to many different sectors of society. The second is to work towards the goal of having Winnipeg designated as a Human Rights City, to the gradual development of a community based on equality and non-discrimination.
