Gala 2021: Raising Our Voices


November 28, 2021

A hybrid gala featuring
Honourary Co-Chairs:  Bonnie Buhler and Paul Mahon
Keynote Speaker: Master Carver Carey Newman, Hayalthkin’geme

On November 28, 2021, Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights were thrilled to host Gala 2021: Raising Our Voices. As a hybrid gala, the evening celebrated people taking action for human rights, and those who make that work possible. With your support, this year’s Gala honoured those impacted by residential schools throughout Canada — survivors, their families, and the children who did not return home.

From the inspiring words of Master Carver Carey Newman and the personal reflections of Canadian legend Tom Jackson, to the upbeat messages of hope from the youth group N’we Jinan, we hope you found it a thought-provoking and moving evening.

Thank you for amplifying the voices of those pursuing truth and reconciliation, and for believing human rights matter.

Gala 2021: Raising Our Voices raised an incredible $720,000 to support the ongoing work of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.  Thank you to the following sponsors who made this hybrid gala such a wonderful success!
