A Declaration by and for Indigenous Women, Girls, and Gender Diverse People
May 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Hosted by Nutsamaht. We are one. Our Voices. Our Stories. Indigenous Women’s Pre-conference as part of the Longhouse Dialogues.
Prior to the Women Deliver conference, the Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam, and Squamish Nations will host the Nutsamaht Indigenous Women’s Pre-Conference on June 2, 2019. This gathering presents a unique opportunity to highlight Indigenous women’s voices in the issues and topics that affect them. Indigenous and Women leaders from across the province have gathered to seize this opportunity to develop an Indigenous Women’s Declaration, a lasting and meaningful statement and calls for action aimed at supporting Indigenous women and girls in the challenges they face throughout their lives.
Taking inspiration from the TRC Calls to Action, UNDRIP, and many local women’s declarations and similar documents, the Declaration’s purpose is to act as a guide for all levels of government and private sector organizations in their decision making for programs, services, policy and legislation locally and globally. Our hope is to bring Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people together to create an interactive space to engage with each other and build the Declaration through respectful dialogue. Join us and add your voice, for a round table discussion and engage with the Declaration as part of the Longhouse Dialogues.
