UC Student Matt Thomas Attends International Human Rights Summit at UN

Matt Thomas, a fourth-year UC student in political science and history, recently participated in the 13th Annual International Human Rights Summit, held at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

During the 3-day summit, organized by Youth for Human Rights International, Matt spoke on the importance of young voices in human rights policy-making and met with the Canadian Ambassador to the UN, Michael Grant, as well as youth representatives from around the world.  

Matt says the conference delivered on its promise "to empower young leaders and to teach them that they can make a difference... that everyone has a role to play in making our world one we'd like to live in."
