Great Cause


Few Toronto gatherings bring together as many media, political and sports legends. But instead of a stuffy old gathering, the Night for Rights brings out the smiles. An unforgettable evening celebrating the best of human-rights based reporting.

Gala Dinner


Cocktails at 6 pm, dinner at 7 pm. The evening features our Annual Human Rights Reporting Award, videos from the field, updates from JHR-trained journalists and a dynamic live auction hosted by the one-and-only Auctionista.
