At just 18 years old, African-born Monicka Biar has seen more than her fair share of the youth justice system and a bias that works against people of colour. As a member of the Red Cross Youth Justice Advisory Group (YJAG), she maintains her commitment to speak and act against racism within the system. She speaks with Connection Matters Radio’s Charles Pakana about her experiences, work in the YJAG and goals.
