Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
For this special episode we are joined by Dr. Fatima Coovadia to have a conversation around Human Rights. Dr Fatima Coovadia was born in South Africa and immigrated to Canada as a teenager. She is an ardent advocate of human rights and works diligently within the community to build social cohesion. She is passionate about education and provides learning opportunities for individuals and organizations, exploring themes such as racism and identity. In 2018, Fatima was appointed as a Commissioner with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission and feels immensely privileged to have this opportunity.
With us she discusses her journey growing up in South Africa and how that inspired her work today, equity vs. equality, vaccine inequality around the world, and her call to action for the community in light of International Human Rights Day.
