Seniors and Discrimination focuses on understanding the three Rs - Rights, Respect and Responsibility through videos and discussions. This program educates seniors about human rights and human rights law, with the intention of fostering respect for human rights and respect for each other. The program will help seniors of all backgrounds learn about the remedies that they have available, under the law, in dealing with intolerance, bigotry, discrimination, harassment, and bullying. It will also be helpful for staff personnel working in seniors’ organizations to deal with instances of discrimination they may face.

The 30-minute video contains stories and experiences of seniors and some of their caregivers. It examines the impact discrimination can have on a person and why people often do not speak up when they experience rude remarks, disrespectful behavior, or when they are deliberately ignored or excluded. A legal expert discusses possible actions regarding the examples of discrimination. Seniors offer their suggestions on what can be done to assist seniors and others who experience discrimination.
