“ For the past 38 years, Equitas’ International Human Rights Training Program has helped to create one of the largest international communities of human rights leaders. This network of over 3,600 human rights defenders were trained here in Montreal, and are playing critical roles in making their countries better places to live for the most vulnerable and marginalized.”
