NU Winnipeg: bring friends to a session on Human Rights

Next Up Winnipeg held its first 'Bring a Friend' session where we encouraged participants, alumni and community supporters of NU to bring their friends to the session. This is an initiative that we have decided to try, to broaden the reach of the program and intend to host these sessions twice in a program year moving forward.

Our guest speaker for the evening was Honourable Senator Marilou McPhedran who spoke about the progress and the setbacks we have had in regards to Human Rights advancements. She also brought the Senate to us and engaged in spirited and open conversation with participants about its workings, and avenues for citizen advocacy.
