On November 12th, Speak Silence!

Do you value your right to speak out on issues that are important to you? How would you feel if your voice was silenced?


Join Journalists for Human Rights (jhr) McGill’s annual Speak Silence campaign. By promising to remain silent for at least 3 hours on Friday, November 12th, McGill students will draw attention to those whose voices are silenced through repression and human rights abuses. Funds raised through pledges will go to support jhr’s human rights media development work in sub-Saharan Africa.
Speak Silence events will be held throughout the week of November 8th-12th. Make sure to visit our photo exhibit in the McLennan-Redpath corridor and to check back on our events page for more event details!

"Equality" by Hyder Cadersa is one of the photos featured in jhr's Speak Silence photo exhibit

At the end of Speak Silence, two individuals will get to choose one photo each from our photo exhibit to take home. These will be awarded to:
1) The person who successfully pledges to remain silent for the longest
2) The person who gains the most funds through pledges

Again, take 1 minute to SIGN UP HERE!

If you have any questions, please email Kaitlyn and Portia at jhrmcgill@gmail.com.
