Youth who are targeted by violence and discrimination are faced with distinct health inequities. Our focus is to identify resilience factors in spite of this stigma.
Today is Orange Shirt Day, a day to “honour the children who survived the Indian residential schools and remember those who didn’t.” It’s important that we bring awareness to Orange Shirt Day today and that we work every day to acknowledge and learn about health equity for Indigenous and Two-Spirit youth.
Are you asexual minority youth (i.e. non-heterosexual), 15 – 20 years old, and interested in sharing your experiences in an anonymous online focus group? Then we want to hear from you!
The Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre (SARAVYC) at UBC stands in solidarity with the Black community and supports the efforts of our colleagues in participating in #ShutDownSTEM on June 10, 2020.
