Event details

The Night of the disappeared is a night when we remember the people who were disappeared by authoritarian regimes because of their advocacy for freedom and justice. They spoke out and were persecuted for standing up for the liberation of their people.

It will be a night of songs, poems and other forms of liberating cultural expression to honour those who were disappeared and who sacrificed their lives to build a world where rights are valued. The evening will conclude with the presentation of the Star of the Generation human rights award by the Winnipeg Multicultural Human Rights Forum, followed by a reception. We would like to invite you to be a part of this important event.

All are welcome and there is no charge to attend.

Please note that this program is subject to change or cancellation.
