Amneet Singh Bali formerly served as an Outreach Officer and Press Secretary with Canada’s New Democrats. He is featured in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for his work on the Punjab Mass Cremation Cases and Sikh Genocide. He is also a former Social Justice Fellow in Global Governance in Democracy at Windsor Law, where he will graduate this Spring.
