Description

Are you a social activist or community advocate who is passionate about issues of human rights, peace and war in the prevailing international environment? Are you also concerned about how the current war footing from Ukraine to the Middle East appears to be a march toward World War III and ‘Armageddon’.

We’re seeking volunteers who are self-motivated to help us invite outstanding panelists to discuss and debate Canada’s role in all of this and the way forward to avoid a descent into a nuclear holocaust which would instantaneously destroy billions of lives.

Applicants should have either some academic background in international relations or human rights along with a track record connecting with various international human rights initiatives.

You should have a short list of possible illustrious candidates for such a panel destruction.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Help support one's social commitments to supporting community dialogue on a matter of our human survival.
How will the organization benefit?
Help support our Expo as a constructive force of dialogue in the community toward a stronger Canada which supports a better world and not complete human self-destruction.
Volunteer location:
Suite 325 - 207 Bank Street
