The Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties envisions a society where diversity is valued, liberties are respected, and rights are lived.
The Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene and Metis peoples. Our primary office is located on Treaty 1 Territory as well as the birthplace and homeland of the Métis Nation, though our work extends throughout Treaties 2, 3, 4 and 5. We respect the Treaties formed on these territories, and acknowledge that We Are All Treaty People. We recognize the genocide and colonization endured by Indigenous peoples, and we are committed to working in partnership with Indigenous communities toward justice, equity, and reconciliation.
Incorporated in 1978, the Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties has worked to promote and defend rights in Manitoba in many different capacities. From advocacy, research and publication, to emphasis on youth-based education programming and community events - MARL seeks to find long-term solutions to human rights issues in the province.
MARL works with a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers. Find out more about the people behind our organization.
