Worth Your While

I'm thinking this presentation might just be worth your while to attend.

On Tuesday, May 29th, Dave Shannon, the CEO of the NS Human Rights Commission will be giving a presentation on Human Rights Legislation in Nova Scotia.  This is being hosted by the LAUNCH program.

I went to a Human Rights presentation a few months ago but, sadly, wasn't that impressed. However, I hold out more hope for this one because Dave not only has the legal knowledge [we went to Law School together although I don't really know him, except to see (and read about) him], but he is also a person with a physical disability. And he has done some absolutely amazing things, both in his own life and for promoting the rights of persons with disabilities.

From the excerpt on the presentation I received today:
Please join us as we welcome David Shannon—CEO of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission. David is the author of Six Degrees of Dignity: Disability in an Age of Freedom. He has practiced Law in Ontario. David is a person with quadriplegia as a result of a spinal cord injury at the age of 18. He can provide information regarding Human Rights legislation in Nova Scotia.

So, will I see you there?

DATE:  Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

TIME: 6:45pm to 8:30pm

LOCATION: The Club—St. James Anglican Church at the Rotary
