We Matter is an Indigenous-led and youth-centered organization and registered charity dedicated to Indigenous youth support, hope and life promotion that operates nationally in Canada.
We Matter’s mission is to communicate to Indigenous youth that they matter and create spaces of support for those going through a hard time while fostering unity and resiliency. This is done through their founding project, the We Matter Campaign which is a national multi-media campaign in which Indigenous role models and allies from across Canada submit short videos, 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.
We Matter has launched the #IndigenousYouthRise: COVID-19 Support Fund. The COVID-19 Support Fund is a unique grant that provides Indigenous youth in Canada ages 13-30 with up to $500 for online projects that will help support their peers during the pandemic.
