In the past, Baird came out strongly against the Palestinian bid for membership in the UN's cultural agency. At the time, he froze Canada's contributions to UNESCO, saying Ottowa was deeply disappointed by the vote to grant full membership to the Palestinian Authority.

Also speaking at the event was former adviser and speech writer of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Professor Clarence B. Jones.
