Water Advocate Autumn Peltier

The only Canadian who has been nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize, Autumn is raising awareness and calling the world to action, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau—whom she firmly told when they met, “I’m very unhappy with the choices you’ve made.”
