I had the honour of joining the Feathers of Hope team in Ottawa yesterday to launch Feathers of Hope: A First Nations Youth Action Plan. This plan was drafted by First Nations youth & allies and outlines concrete steps that decision-makers and communities need to take to address historical injustices and pave the way for a more equitable future. I will be posting about the design process and the outcomes shortly, but for now please take some time to read this incredibly important document. It has been humbling and transformative to be part of this project, which is quickly turning into a youth-led movement. Full media coverage here.
Mark your calendars! Feathers of Hope: A First Nations Youth Action Plan launches on Monday, Feb. 24 simultaneously in Toronto, Ottawa, and Thunder Bay. I've been working on the design of this monumental document, which compiles the findings and recommendations from the Feathers of Hope Youth Forum that took place in 2013.
