Upcoming Clinic for People Concerned About Discriminatory Treatment During the G20

Nov 23 2010

Who?: HUMAN RIGHTS LEGAL SUPPORT CENTRE
When?: TUESDAY NOVEMBER 23 at 10:00 am and 5:00 pm
Where?: 180 Dundas Street West, 8th Floor

This session will assist people who are thinking about filing a human rights application under the Human Rights Code about their treatment during the G20.

You may have been treated in a discriminatory manner if the police or other G-20 authorities treated you negatively and differently because of your race, ethnic origin, place of origin, citizenship, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or creed, or family/marital status. The session is also for people who had needs related to a disability, or related to another Code-related factor such as age or gender, if those needs were not recognized and meet by the police, for example, during the G-20.

The Human Rights Legal Support Centre (HRLSC) is holding two "application clinics" on Tuesday, November 23. One session is from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Another session will be from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Both sessions are identical - there is no need to attend both sessions. The clinics will be held at 180 Dundas Street West on the 8th floor.

These "hands-on" and practical sessions are designed to assist people to make their own applications to the HRTO. The sessions will include a brief overview of the Human Rights Code and the HRTO Application form itself. This will be a group session, followed by an opportunity for people to speak briefly with lawyers from the HRLSC about their own matters.

To register for either session, please call: 416-314-6266 or 1-866-625-5179. You can register by email at: karen.mcneilly.hrlsc@ontario.ca. For more information, please visit: http://www.hrlsc.on.ca/en/g20summit.htm.
