Reach Out and Connect
Search websites of other youth involved in social change. Some sites for Indigenous youth include: Discuss some of the issues you find on these sites with your home community. If there are chat groups or discussion boards available, join them and share your own perspective with others.

Create a statement about the rights of youth, and particularly indigenous youth. What rights should be protected? What can you do to help?

As youth around the world prepare for the August 31 World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance outside link, find out more about the ways that discrimination harms youth. If it has harmed you or others you care about, take a stand and let people know that it is wrong.
