Rankin Inlet: September 24 – 28, 2018

While visiting Rankin Inlet, Lori delivered eight Raise Your Voice: Self-Advocacy Workshops for youth in grades 8 -12. Thank you to Maani Ulujuk Ilinniarvik, Pulaarvik Friendship Center, the drop in centre, and the Northern Store for accommodating Lori by providing space for workshop activities and the opportunity to spread awareness about child rights and the work of our office. Lori was excited to hear about many different community groups that are working to provide recreational activities for children and youth in the community, and to see that the new drop in centre now has a kitchen and a separate space for elders and youth to spend time together.
