On May 14 and 15, students in Owen Sound will welcome the acclaimed Tour for Humanity (@TourForHumanity) bus from the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC).

The Tour for Humanity is a 30-seat, wheel-chair accessible, state-of-the-art, technologically advanced mobile human rights education centre that teaches students, educators, community leaders, and front-line professionals about topics of diversity, democracy, and Canadian civic rights and responsibilities.

The purpose of Tour for Humanity is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and take action against hate and intolerance, bullying and to promote justice and human rights.

Since its launch in 2013, the Tour for Humanity has visited more than 450 schools across Ontario and provided invaluable lessons on tolerance, human rights and justice to 100,000 students and educators.

On Monday, it will be at Notre Dame at 9am and on Tuesday at St. Mary’s at 9am.
