We Stand Together
Daily Fact #11:
We need your fact! Take action by creating an 11th Daily Fact, and join a movement of Canadians standing together to raise awareness.
Why take a stand?
- Aboriginal Canadians are more likely than other Canadians to face challenges like ill-health, poverty and inadequate housing.
- What’s more, 40% of Aboriginal Peoples aged 20 to 24 reported having less than a high school education in 2006.
- At the same time, First Nations, Métis and Inuit Canadians have a rich history and their culture and traditions contribute much to our nation.
What you can do
We Stand Together consists of two weeks of learning and awareness on Aboriginal history, culture and tradition, as well as the challenges and opportunities present for Aboriginal education today. For 10 days between February 25th – March 8th, 2013, participants will receive an interactive fact designed specifically for each day of the campaign. Share the daily facts sent out during the campaign to start a dialogue in your community, then create your own “11th Daily Fact” to raise awareness. Additionally, lesson plans, posters, and resources will be available for free for all who register.
Join Free The Children and Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative (MAEI) as we highlight the successes and challenges of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.
Educate yourself and others, and take a stand on Aboriginal issues.
