Human Rights Art Show

March 22, 2011

“Today we are not just celebrating art; we are celebrating someone’s story.  My simple hope for each of us is that we take the time to listen to each other’s stories and have the courage to tell our own, for this is the only way we will ever end the discrimination and intolerance of our age.

This means that real education does not just take place in the classrooms, but also in between the classrooms – on our benches, in our hallways, green spaces and in common areas.

If we are to be a place of education, then we must be a place that develops our hearts as much as our brains.”

Tune in the rest of Fr. Chris’ address at the Human Rights Art Show sponsored by the University of Windsor Human Rights and Development Office.
