Plans regarding the content for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) were published in the Winnipeg Free Press on November 27, 2010. To UCC’s great concern and dismay, the plans did not include the Holodomor as having a prominent space in the museum, nor did it include the Internment operations of 1914-1920. As a result, UCC issued a call to action to the community on December 11, 2010.
Since that time, meetings with museum and government officials have taken place at the local and federal levels, postcard awareness campaigns have been undertaken, and petitions have been signed and submitted with some successful outcomes. UCC was pleased to learn of the appointment of Dr. Lindy Ledohowski to the museum’s Board of Directors however be assured that this campaign will continue until all of UCC’s goals are achieved.
However, addressing this important issue has caused UCC to incur significant unexpected expenses and so UCC is now asking for your assistance. Please donate to the CMHR appeal fund created specifically for this campaign to ensure that UCC is able to pursue the successful resolution of this issue and present its case wherever necessary.
