Happy (almost) Birthday!
The Sacred Earth Advocacy Network, a project of WEA’s Women and Land Initiative, will celebrate its first birthday this June! Over the past year, we’ve established a thriving and growing network of advocates applying their legal, policy and business expertise in pro bono partnership with indigenous women environmental justice leaders in North America. Our Network ensures access to critical advocacy resources — like litigation, regulatory advocacy, organizational development, and policy analysis, among others — for our indigenous women project partners, forging strategic collaborations to promote environmental health, protect sacred sites and support green energy development on tribal lands.
Do you want to help us celebrate?
Join us on an Advocacy Delegation! Our Advocacy Delegations educate and empower dynamic teams of women advocates to support communities where fossil fuel development and mineral extraction impact tribal lands and cultures. These Delegations are unique opportunities for women advocates and activists to come together, bridging cultures and life experiences to strengthen a shared vision of sustainability and justice on earth. Through dialogue and immersive learning, delegates build a foundation for sustained collaborative engagement with indigenous environmental justice leaders.
There are still spaces left in our July 2010 Delegation, Protecting Water and Tribal Culture in California, and our September 2010 Delegation, Promoting Green Energy on the Navajo Nation.
