We Matter is an Indigenous youth-led and nationally registered organization dedicated to Indigenous youth support, hope and life promotion.
Our work started with the We Matter Campaign – a national multi-media campaign in which Indigenous role models, youth, and community members from across Canada submit short video, written and artistic messages sharing their own experiences of overcoming hardships, and communicating with Indigenous youth that no matter how hopeless life can feel, there is always a way forward.

Youth working with the Rainbow Coalition of Yellowknife have created some amazing resources to inform and educate. These resources are great for anyone wanting to learn more about 2SLGBTQIA+ to understand their own identity, if you or someone you know is questioning, or if you are an ally. It is up to you to educate yourself, it is not fair to expect others to do it for you.
