VIDEA is committed to ending global poverty and creating a more just and equitable world.

VIDEA is a feminist human rights focused non-profit organisation that works in partnership with youth, other organisations, and Indigenous communities in Canada and abroad to create a more just and equitable world. We work to improve youth and community understanding of gender and human rights, and to build the capacity of organisations and communities to address human rights violations, to implement climate change adaptation activities, and to work towards reconciliation.

Our Feminist Manifestx

Our feminism will challenge and shatter everything oppressive that we’ve accepted as normal. To us, feminism is decolonized, Indigenous, intersectional, complex, brave, anti-capitalist. Our feminism meets
people where they are, it is dynamic and transforming. Our feminism is not business as usual.

Our Statement on Racism

VIDEA denounces all forms of racism, racial discrimination, and oppression. Racism, discrimination and oppression limit opportunities, cause harm to individuals and communities, and wreck lives. Racism, discrimination and oppression are wrong. We recognize no grey areas. These issues will not be debated within VIDEA.
