On April 2nd & 3rd #NotInMyCity will employ collective action at the “Beyond Net Zero – The Canada Declaration” conference in Winnipeg.
Hosted by Rotary Action Group Against Slavery Canada (RAGAS), along with presenting partners IJM (International Justice Mission) Canada, The Mekong Club, Rotary Canada and #NotInMyCity, the event will spotlight leading policy insiders, experts, survivors and fellow partners who are paving the way to end Human Trafficking and forced labor slavery.
Hosted at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, this conference will create a space for discussion around this needed historic commitment and rally key influencers to become signatories to the declaration.
Says former NHL’er and Stanley Cup champion Jay Beagle, “Thank you to all who have signed The Declaration to create a Human Trafficking and slavery-free Canada.”
Iconic Calgary Flames and Stanley Cup winner Jim Peplinski will also be providing support. “Some actions build character, and other actions reveal it. I first learned about the terrible issue of Human Trafficking through the Alberta-based organization #NotInMyCity,” he said. “I’m grateful to all who will be attending the Beyond Net Zero –
“Canada Declaration event at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, and to all who have signed The Declaration.”
This iconic document will make its way around the world through international Rotary events centered around combating Human Trafficking. Next stop, the National Congress in Australia!
