Youth March 2017 - End discrimination and violence

May 25, 2017 at 3:27 PM



You are invited to join us for our Youth Week event: Youth March to End Violence and Discrimination. This is happening 4th of June from 1pm at Britomart, Auckland CBD. 

Shakti Youth are holding a peaceful youth march against all forms of violence and discrimination on the 4th of June at 1pm to mark Youth Week 2017. The march will begin at Britomart and end at Aotea Square, where we will see and hear inspirational speakers and performances! We want to raise awareness that violence and discrimination is present in our society, so that we can actually make a change. 

Aotearoa New Zealand has the highest rates of reported family violence as well as youth suicide in the OECD and gender equality is still not achieved here. Young people are stereotyped as problematic; migrants have to deal with racism daily; and Muslims with Islamophobia. We want to make a change to end violence and discrimination based on age, gender, ethnicity, religion, class, ability and sexual orientation. Youth voices in Aotearoa will be celebrated in an effort to end violence and discrimination. 

Come along and invite your friends and family! Let’s show everyone that our voices count!
