Title

Elmer Bagares (1970- )

Description

"I committed to the political, social and cultural developments that shape my community and I am especially moved to serve its members. For the past decade, I have devoted my academic, volunteer, professional and personal endeavours to the concerns of those who are more marginalized within our society. I believe the source of my motivation comes from my deeply rooted values in human rights, social justice and anti-oppression.

These values are verbs not nouns. They must be acted upon; injustices must be challenged, not tolerated. Tolerance is merely the expression of complicity. We all have the responsibility to know the difference and act accordingly." (2000 Induction Statement)
