nearly half (46%) of canada’s incarcerated youth are indigenous. experts have stated that the rates of young indigenous children are high because of the lack of resources necessary. non indigenous people have far more opportunity to serve community sentences, use a halfway house, and receive other services that haven’t been made available to many indigenous people. 

once these youth finish their sentencing life remains difficult. let’s help fight for alternative to jail for the young indigenous youth. 

these children belong at home and in schools as they are still growing up and developing to become young adults
