We cannot solve climate change without supporting indigenous communities. They are on the front lines fighting to protect their lands from so many forms of exploitative practices that lead to devastating carbon emissions, like fossil fuel extraction, deforestation, and wildlife harvesting.
The political leadership in the United States and Brazil aren’t providing the aid these groups need to survive in the face of the coronavirus. That’s why this week, if you’re able, we’re asking you to consider donating to native-led organizations that are working to get emergency relief to indigenous people.
However, we’re also aware that many people may not be in a position to make donations right now. If that’s you, consider sharing the links on social media or with anyone looking for organizations to support right now. You never know whose generosity you might inspire.
