Truth and Reconciliation Policy Matters
Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth need to be involved whenever and wherever committees are planning, creating, researching and evaluating policies that affect them. By means of formal and informal decision-making processes, Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth can be involved in choices that are powerful, meaningful and substantive.
In our work, Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement Society (ALIVE) has an ongoing objective of assisting Indigenous youth to become more acquainted with the provisions of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) as well as the main themes of the Declaration
