The Human Rights Hub provides a central space to coordinate and promote the events and activities of the many individuals and groups in Winnipeg taking action on human rights issues! The Hub focuses on local activities, but has a global outlook on issues.

  • A shared calendar for human rights events
  • A space to learn about current employment and volunteer opportunities
  • Profiles of Winnipeg organizations active in human rights issues
  • A shared blog to learn what organizations are up to in our city

Check out what the Hub can do for you—and what you can contribute through the Hub!

Development of the Human Rights Hub Winnipeg was supported by an Emerging Leader’s Fellowship from the Winnipeg Foundation. We are grateful for the continued funding we have received from the Winnipeg Foundation’s Community Grants Program!

Part of Mars has been named after our city: Yes, we’re THAT cold. But there’s something in that cold air that nurtures a passion and a spirit you won’t find elsewhere. After all, the Jet’s slogan isn’t “Fuelled by Passion” for nothing! 😀
Winnipeggers care – this has been proven to me again and again, whether by the 100s of Winnipeggers that march outside every February to raise awareness about missing and murdered Indigenous women, or by the 700+ events we’ve seen on the Hub’s calendar in the first 8 months alone! There’s no shortage of issues that need to be addressed in our city, but I am heartened by the actions and changes being made.

My hope is that the Human Rights Hub will foster relationships between Winnipeggers and the organizations working to make our city, country and world a better place for all.

I was drawn to this city by the University of Winnipeg and by the significant Indigenous population. Once I moved here, in 2010, I fell in love with the neighborhoods, the lively arts scene, the great restaurants, and the rich diversity of peoples.
