Purpose: This 24-month project will strengthen the understanding of individual and collective rights among Indigenous women across Alberta (Slave Lake, Edmonton, and Calgary) and develop the necessary leadership skills to assert their rights from a national and international human rights perspective. The organization will deliver training sessions for Indigenous women on national and international human rights principles and frameworks in relation to Indigenous values, such as the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous Rights. Indigenous women will identify how these rights can be protected at the community and regional level and present key recommendations to elected officials and stakeholders. Relevant government stakeholders and Indigenous women will work together to develop a plan to implement these recommendations at the local and regional level.
