A new toolkit has been released by IllumiNative, For Our Future: An Advocate’s Guide to Supporting Indigenous Peoples’ Day, draws on the lessons and research from Native advocates who are on the frontlines fighting for change. As part of our commitment to achieve health equity for all, Voices for Healthy Kids provided funding to support IllumiNative in the development of this resource for communities.
The toolkit provides a full suite of resources pertaining to Indigenous Peoples’ Day including a brief historical overview of the day, case studies on recent adoptions by several cities, and provides available resources for all advocates of Indigenous communities from around the world to access and participate in the upcoming celebration. While this toolkit is not exhaustive, it can serve as a foundation to support advocates and allies in their work.
