VOICES: Addressing the Ongoing Genocides against the Rohingya and Uyghurs

On the Human Rights Defenders Day and the Genocide Prevention Day, join us in this important conversation with our guest speakers Yasmin Ullah (advocate for Rohingya rights) and Mehmet Tohti (advocate for Uyghur rights).

VOICES supports activists in exile who are trying to make the home they left a better place.

This event is part of a diverse and rich programme developed to highlight the 40th anniversary of the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) at the University of Ottawa.
