This 7th Annual presentation of the Dr. Philip Weiss Award – Storytelling for Peace and Human Rights honours Dr. Arthur V. Mauro at a dinner hosted at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
Patrons are invited to attend the dinner and/or make a donation in recognition of the legacy of Dr. Philip Weiss, in honouring Dr. Arthur Mauro, and in support of the Winnipeg International Storytelling Festival, an outreach program of the Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace & Justice at St. Paul’s College.
In honouring Dr. Arthur Mauro, we are recognizing his clarity of vision and his ability to share that story of the future in the creation of the Mauro Centre, the Peace and Conflict Studies Graduate Programs, and the Winnipeg International Storytelling Festival, among other outreach programs in the pursuit of peace and justice.
"It is my dream that the Centre for Peace and Justice be a model that others will follow. That the teachings of respect for diversity and of rational discourse and human interaction that exists at the University would be sustained. That the intellectual tradition of the Jesuits to infuse knowledge with the pursuit of social justice would prevail at St. Paul's College. And that in years to come we can with pride claim some small contribution to creating a better world.” Dr. Arthur V. Mauro (2003)
Dr. Philip Weiss (1922–2008) was an untiring human rights educator and author of Humanity in Doubt (2006). Over two decades, he shared his compelling personal story as a survivor of the Holocaust to tens of thousands of young people.
