Many people in the crowded Membertou audience stood to honor Barry Waldman as he received the Tom Miller Human Rights award last night at the African Heritage Gala. The EPIC staff were among them.
The annual award is given:
"In recognition of dedication and outstanding service in the community, particularly for those disadvantaged by discrimination or poverty."
Barry's speech was deeply personal as well as speaking to the broader issues of community, volunteerism and human rights.
Well done, Barry!
