End Racism and Hate: Your Right. Your Responsibility.

Human Rights Documents

The Network’s rights-based approach to addressing racism is guided by international, national and provincial policies, calls to action, and recommendations.

Know Your Rights

Every person is born equal. We are all human beings and we all have the same human rights.

Human rights are values, principles and beliefs that form the foundation of society, community and systems that ensure that all people are treated equally.

Human rights belong to all people, all the time, in all places – it does not matter where you live, the colour of your skin, your race or ethnicity, your abilities, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or if you are a citizen, immigrant, temporary resident or visitor.

All human rights are equally important and are not a privilege that one can take away. Human rights are not a reward for good behaviour, we all have them simply by being born.

Your rights are protected at the provincial, national and international levels:

Know Your Responsibilities

We all need to take responsibility to address discrimination, hate, racism, or exclusion in our communities. We can take action together.
