NGO Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Raising the Visibility of Indigenous Peoples
Activities of the Committee
The NGO Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples usually meets once a month. The NGO Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is open to Indigenous Peoples, representatives of International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs).
Programs and Speakers
With our organization’s mission always in mind, the NGO Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples organizes programs, on its own or in partnership with other entities, to raise the visibility of Indigenous Peoples at the local, national, and international level. The Committee, at times, can also identify speakers for programs not organized by the Committee. Contact us to learn more.
