February 26, 2004 (Halifax) Barbara Coloroso, internationally recognized speaker and author on parenting and teaching, will be speaking on Wednesday, March 10th at the Dalhousie Arts Centres Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. All proceeds from her lecture, Just Because It Isnt Wrong Doesnt Make It Right, From Toddlers to Teenagers, Teaching Kids to Think and Act Ethically will be used to support the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
Stephens tireless advocacy and passionate articulation has literally changed the HIV/AIDS agenda around the world. He has not only raised our awareness, he has given us a vehicle the Stephen Lewis Foundation – through which we can help on an individual and collective basis, said Ms. Coloroso. I am especially impressed with the Foundations commitment to distribute resources directly to the grassroots level.
Barbara Colorosos lecture, hosted by CUPE, the AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia School Board Association, Maritime School of Social Work-Dalhousie University, Mount St. Vincent Department of Education, St. Francis Xavier University School of Education and the Xtending Hope Partnership, promises to be packed with practical advice for parents and educators on how to use the stuff of everyday life to teach kids to act with integrity, civility, and compassion.
The lecture is the second of many that Coloroso has volunteered to do in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundations work for HIV/AIDS in Africa. The Foundation was created as a result of the work of Canadian Stephen Lewis, the United Nations Secretary Generals Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and recent Macleans Magazine selection for its inaugural Canadian of the Year award.
The Stephen Lewis Foundation has a threefold focus: providing care at the community level to women who are dying; assisting orphans and other AIDS-affected children; and supporting associations that work to educate the broader community about the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
Ms. Colorosos lecture will take place on Wednesday, March 10th 2004 at 7:30pm at the Dalhousie Arts Centre Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. Tickets are available for $30 ($15 for students) from the Dalhousie Arts Centre Box Office and Chapters in Halifax and Dartmouth, or by phone at 1-800-874-1669. All proceeds from the event will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
This lecture is the second in a series to support the Stephen Lewis Foundation. After a successful event in Victoria, future Coloroso lectures are also planned for Vancouver and Toronto.
