The community tour is part of the lead up to Amnesty International’s participation in ‘Our Dreams Matter Too,’ a national day of action (on June 11th) in support of the right of First Nations children to grow up safely and healthily at home with access to culturally-appropriate education.
Amnesty has long campaigned to eliminate the discriminatory gap in funding for child and family services for First Nations children living on reserve. Amnesty has been proud to stand alongside the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society in issuing a series of action appeals. Amnesty also has standing in the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Case initiated by the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society and the Assembly of First Nations.
