Héritiers de la Justice

The Genocide Prevention Group will hold a small meeting with Maurice Namwira on June 18, 2010 from 9:00am to 10:00am in room 112-N, Center Block.

Maurice Namwira is the Executive Secretary of a Congolese organization called Héritiers de la Justice (HJ).  HJ strives to promote and protect human rights in the Great Lakes Region of Africa. It was created in 1991 and is mandated to provide training to local leaders, disseminate information about human rights, promote co-existence and intercommunity dialogue, and teach human rights and peacebuilding in local schools. HJ is often the key source of information for Human Rights Watch reports regarding the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the organization has benefited from financial and administrative support from KAIROS Canada.

Please confirm your attendance with Mallory at [email protected] before Wednesday June 16, 2010.
