CHARLIE ANGUS' LETTER TO SUPPORTERS - JANUARY 18, 2019

Friends,

I know you're busy, I know you've got lots to do, but I'm asking you to take 20 minutes to watch a film made by the youth of Attawapiskat. This video is a powerful and hopeful testament of a young generation looking to reconcile their past with the future.

Over the last number of years, Attawapiskat youth have been at the centre of so many important struggles. Shannen Koosatchin was only 13 when she launched the largest youth-driven human rights movement in Canadian history. Her legacy continues to inspire youth activists across the country.

Attawapiskat is also a community that suffered a frightening youth suicide epidemic and a brutal housing crisis. Yet even in the darkest moments, youth leaders were on the ground making a difference.

Here's what I've learned from my work in the far north:

Hope is not something vague or sweet. It isn't a luxury. Hope is sweat and hard work. Hope is the cement that rebuilds the broken homes and establishes solid foundations for the coming generation.

Please watch this video. This is hope in action.

We're in this together, Charlie
