Dignity During a Pandemic is a community project of the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights. This podcast was catalyzed by our YEG Dignity campaign in which we engaged with the lived experiences of folks in our community during a global pandemic to open in dialogue about injustices people in our communities face through their stories and lived experiences. We delve into how the many facets of our identities shape how we are treated in our communities, and how each of us navigates the struggles that surface and also find hope and strength during these challenging times.

    Ep.10 - Family and Dignity

    The tenth episode of Dignity During a Pandemic takes time to check in with the experience of COVID-19 for young people and families. We hear how quarantine has changed everyday habits and helped grow a bigger understanding of what dignity means from both older and younger voices.

    Maigan connects us with her twin sister, Lana Gilday, a sexual health educator and nurse who was visiting family in Yellowknife, NorthWest Territories this summer. We caught up with Lana and the kids Sahtu, Dov, Lhasa, and Saffia over the summer while they were visiting family in Yellowknife. We were glad to include their voices and hear some reflections from the next generation.
