The 2012 OPSEU Human Rights Conference, “Social Change through Social Media” is scheduled to take place at the Sheraton Parkway North in Richmond Hill on November 16-18.
The goal of the conference is to integrate human rights advocacy and social media by combining a focus on practical advocacy skills for using social media with discussion on key human rights issues. By bringing together diverse OPSEU members from across the province, we hope to develop innovative approaches to social media and human rights as well as practical strategies for action in the workplace and community.
The conference will consist of panel discussions, plenaries, workshops, hands-on use of social media and much more.
The 2012 conference is hosted by the Aboriginal Circle, the Disability Rights Caucus, the Francophone Caucus, the Provincial Human Rights Committee, the Provincial Young Worker’s Committee, the Rainbow Alliance and the Workers of Colour Caucus.
