Are you or do you know someone who is First Nations, Métis or Inuit who might like to join us in our climate action work, contributing their perspective and collaborating with us in whatever role they would like?
We see our movement as inseparable from the movements for racial, social, and economic justice, and for Indigenous rights, so it is in our mandate to grow our collective power and build the world we need.
Indigenous Perspectives on Climate ActionA Four Part Webinar Series
Join us for the second of a four-part webinar series in which Indigenous climate action leaders in BC share their thoughts and experience, hosted in partnership with the RAVEN. We will be meeting with guest speakers
Pansy Wright-Simms, a member of the Luutkudziiwus, a traditional “wilp,” or house group, of the Gitxsan Nation. And Leona Humchitt, Councillor, and Climate Action Coordinator, Heiltsuk Nation.
Join us and RAVEN as we meet with Rueben George, and Chiefs Smogelgem and Roland Willson to learn about their resistance in the face of TMX, Coastal GasLink, and Site C-Dam.
Sifting through the woefully inadequate “CleanBC Roadmap to 2030” released ahead of COP26, it appears that B.C.’s plan is to force through infrastructure for long-term fossil fuel projects now, over the objections of First Nations and in violation of treaty and Aboriginal rights.
