Gilad is an artist, human rights advocate and founder of JAYU. Gilad has been actively involved in the human rights scene since 2006. Feeling the need to raise more awareness in his own community, Gilad launched JAYU in 2012, using art as the main vehicle. Gilad has been invited to speak on human rights in media and several platforms including VICE, CTV, CBC, The Globe and Mail, Al Jazeera America, and the 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva in 2012. In 2015, he was selected as Rothschild Fellow through The University of Cambridge in the UK. He is the current co-host of The Hum Podcast, a weekly human rights show featured on iTunes and Rabble.
