WINDSOR, ON, Sept. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - On Tuesday September 10, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. national security expert Professor Reem Bahdi joins board and staff of the Human Rights Legal Support Centre for an electric review of continuing human rights violations against Canadians who are under suspicion because of their country of origin or religion.
Held at the Faculty of Law, the event is co-sponsored by the University of Windsor and the Human Rights Legal Support Centre. Event organizers hope the event will spark discussions and action in the Windsor area about the racial profiling of Arab-Canadians and Muslims facing scrutiny from banks, law enforcement agencies and, in some cases, even their neighbours.
Professor Bahdi is the Associate Dean of Windsor Law School. She is a renowned expert on the human rights dimensions of national security laws and policies in Canada.
The Human Rights Legal Support Centre provides free legal support to people throughout Ontario who believe their human rights under Ontario`s Human Rights Code have been violated.
