Activating The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)

11 June 2020 / Registration Closed

This year marks 5 years since the Philanthropic Community’s Declaration of Action (The Declaration) was created and signed. The Declaration is a commitment made in response to Philanthropy’s role activating the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action (TRC), which was created on the foundation of The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

This webinar is an opportunity to remember the intentions and calls to action of The Declaration and recognize how UNDRIP can be a catalyst for increased justice and partnership with Indigenous-led and Indigenous-informed organizations.

Funders are invited to join us on June 11th from 1 PM- 2:30 PM EST to hear from our panel, consisting of:

• Jessica Wood, Assistant Deputy Minister, Reconciliation Transformation and Strategies Division, Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, Province of British Columbia;

• Ginger Gosnell-Myers, Fellow, Simon Fraser University

• Andrea Reimer, Former Councillor, City of Vancouver;

The session will be moderated by Kris Archie, The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. They will share their unique and powerful stories on how they’ve worked on municipal, provincial and/or national levels to activate UNDRIP in their organizations and institutions.

Webinar participants will leave this webinar with:
– Increased understanding of the importance of UNDRIP
– Resources to learn more about how to activate and uphold UNDRIP in your organization
– Awareness on how and where to find support in this work
