The Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties
Formed in 1978, the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties is a non-profit, non-governmental, human rights and civil liberties organization. MARL envisions a society where diversity is valued, liberties are respected, and rights are lived. We take action in education and advocacy for human rights and civil liberties toward greater social justice in the province.
MARL changes the way people think about human rights in Manitoba. MARL educates and creates awareness for rights and liberties within the province of Manitoba. We build engaged communities and empower citizens to improve our society.
We are dedicated to:
-Raising awareness: We focus strongly on youth empowerment through workshops and activities that measurably increase awareness of human rights and civil liberties.
-Making a difference: With the ultimate goal of societal shift, we influence government and public institutional policy changes to reflect and protect human rights in Manitoba
-Community involvement: We facilitate dialogue about human rights and civil liberties to build an informed and engaged community.
