The Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) has developed an advocacy toolkit to share! Advocacy is an important part of how MCC does the work of relief, development and peace-building. “At MCC we base their advocacy on what we hear from workers and partners on the ground; we believe loving our neighbours means their voices shape our message to governments.”

History of Hate

Getting a Grip In Order to Move Ahead

Study Circle Plan

by Renee Vaugeois, John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights

According to Stats Canada, hate crime in Alberta rose 39% in 2015, the highest increase seen across the country. In order to grapple and deal with hate however, it is important to understand its historical foundations. This study circle plan will engage participants in learning and discussing our complex history, with a focus on Alberta, and reflect on how this history manifests in communities today. We will engage in a reflection on how we as individuals can respond and act towards hate in our communities.
