I am one of VIDEA’s board members and have been a long-time supporter of their incredible work in social justice, gender equality and human rights.

Your donation to the Global Solidarity Challenge will give VIDEA the resources to keep coming up with creative programs and solutions to make our global community stronger, kinder, and more just.

Just a few examples of the amazing things VIDEA has done lately are:

  • Creating a decolonization toolkit for organizations, and delivering decolonization workshops
  • Sending 15 team members to the 65th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women
  • Wellness Wednesdays – an Indigenous-led, weekly workshop to support healing, connection and community for Indigenous youth
  • Connect with Kindness – a campaign led by youth to address online hate against the LGBTQ2S community and women

This year for the GSC, I’m challenging myself to challenge our policy makers. From July 19-24, I’ll make a phone call or write a letter each day (more than one if I can!) to elected officials at every level of government, calling on them to enact the 94 Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation.

I’m proud to be part of the VIDEA family and I’m inspired by their committed, passionate, almost all-youth staff. I hope you’ll join me in donating to support this exceptional organization!
