VIDEA brings a feminist lens and a gender justice approach to our organization. Our work strives to support and inspire others, especially Indigenous, and underrepresented youth, to better understand global issues, and issues of oppression, discrimination, and systemic racism, and to use their power and voice, towards more just and sustainable communities.
Gender justice is a human right. It is the systemic redistribution of power, opportunities, and access for marginalized people, womxn, and girls. Gender justice happens through the dismantling of racist and sexist systems and institutions that oppress and through the dismantling of patriarchy. Gender justice is intersectional and centers the needs, experiences, and leadership of those most impacted by discrimination and oppression.
