Community of Practice: Advancing a Culture of Human Rights for Poverty Solutions

The Community of Practice: Advancing a Culture of Human Rights for Poverty Solutions is intended to engage individuals and organizations who are applying or want to apply a rights-based approach in their work.

Participants meet by webinar every two to three months. Topics discussed during the webinars will focus on the sharing of good practices and lessons learned to advance a culture of human rights in Canada.

The next webinar, “Connecting with the Everyday,” takes place on February 20 from 12-1 p.m. EST. Kate Mechan, Community Outreach Worker with the Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition, and Lori Kleinsmith, Health Promoter with Bridges Community Health Centre Port Colborne, will talk about how they see human rights in their work in their communities.
