Liberty Awards Gala Dinner Event

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 22:30

The Liberty Awards Gala will be held to honour exceptional contributions to the fields of human rights and civil liberties in Canada.

Celebrating excellence in legal advocacy, journalism, the arts and youth activism, the Liberty Awards bring together some of Canada’s preeminent social justice champions. 

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Cindy Blackstock, is a Canadian-born Gitxsan activist for child welfare and Executive Director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada. For more than 20 years she has fought tirelessly to improve education on reserves by promoting equitable and culturally based interventions. The target of shocking government scrutiny and spying, Dr. Blackstock has been an outspoken critic of privacy rights violations. 

As the premier fundraising event of our calendar, the event will be an elegant evening featuring a full sit down meal, silent auction, awards ceremony, and plenty of entertainment. 

A limited amount of early bird tickets are available until May 14 for $130.
