Was able to deliver a statement on behalf of Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights in the 1st United Nations Forum on Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law! "Since we are talking about youth participation, sustainable development and human rights protection, I would just like to open a discussion for those marginalised group not covered in the sustainable development goals and who's rights are most often violated. Specifically, LGBTQ youth and those people who do sex work. I believe these young people can’t participate in democracy if they are criminalised for their work or who they love.
My question is: How can we make sure that the most marginalised and least talked about youth are included and are NOT LEFT BEHIND in the Agenda2030? How can we give them significance, empowerment and role in the SDGs?
We, young people, believe that the real test of commitments to NO ONE LEFT behind will be the actual inclusion of these excluded groups in the plan and indicators for SDGs." #forumhrdem
