Indigenous women across the Americas continue to work diligently to protect their communities from the novel coronavirus, while also addressing ongoing issues of extraction, colonization, Indigenous rights, pipelines in their territories and violence against women. During this two part webinar program, outstanding Indigenous women leaders of North and South America will speak out against the environmentally and socially destructive activities and policies threatening their homelands, which are also exacerbating COVID-19 outbreaks in their communities. We have much to learn from the women’s calls to action, their immediate needs, and their vision for living in respect and well-being with Mother Earth.

These webinars are part of WECAN's “A Just and Healthy World is Possible: Advocacy and Solutions Series,” an ongoing webinar program lifting up women's leadership to support next steps as we continue to collectively build a powerful movement founded on principles of justice, love, and a fierce dedication to our planet and each other.
