On Thursday, October 25 (9:50 am), students at Lester B. Pearson High School in Montreal North (11575 P.M. Favier) will be the first students in Quebec to visit the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Tour for Humanity Bus.

The Tour for Humanity is a 30-seat state-of-the-art mobile human rights education centre. On board, students will learn about diversity, democracy and Canadian civic rights and responsibilities.

The purpose of the Tour for Humanity is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and take action against hate, intolerance and bullying and to promote justice and human rights.

Launched in 2013, the Tour for Humanity has visited more than 550 schools across Ontario and provided invaluable lessons on tolerance, human rights and justice to 100,000 students and educators.
