On June 12, 2013 the BC Civil Liberties Association is excited to host the second annual Liberty Awards Gala evening at the Performance Works theatre space on Granville Island.
The Liberty Awards Gala will be held to honour exceptional contributions to the fields of human rights and civil liberties in Canada in the fields of legal advocacy, journalism, the arts and youth activism.
The evening will include a reception, awards presentation, live entertainment and a keynote address by Dr. David Suzuki to discuss threats to free expression and dissent in Canada.
As the premier fundraising event of our calendar, the event will also have a silent auction component, featuring a great list of items.
For over 50 years the BC Civil Liberties Association has stood for equality, liberty, freedom and justice. Join us for this celebration, and show your support for work that advances a culture of human rights and human dignity in Canada.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
