Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) has created the Tour for Humanity (T4H), a mobile human rights education center to teach students, educators, community leaders, and front-line professionals about topics of diversity, democracy, and Canadian civic rights and responsibilities.
The purpose of T4H is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and take action against hate and intolerance, bullying and to promote justice and human rights.
T4H has already visited dozens of schools and community organizations in Toronto, York Region, Belleville, Pickering, Halton-Peel Region, Durham Region, Ottawa, Newmarket, Orangeville, Unionville, Barrie, Aurora, Port Hope, Milton, Fergus, Georgetown – and many more. It has been welcomed by numerous leaders including Prime Minister Stephen Harper; Premier Kathleen Wynn; Lieutenant Governor General, David Onley and even famous Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.
The Tour will appear at St. Mary Catholic School in Nobleton on Greenside Drive, on Dec. 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
T4H cost $1.2 million to conceive, design and build. It is a 30-seat, wheel-chair accessible, state-of-the-art, technologically advanced mobile education centre that presents information on the effects and consequences of hate and intolerance. The experience travels throughout the province, educating people from different personal and professional backgrounds and experiences. It provides education on historical events, and focus on how these events are relevant to both Canadian and global perspectives.
