The future is female for sure, but right now the revolution is female. Women's network are growing exponentially. We are witnessing an unprecedented women’s engagement in changing the world in every aspect, from building a more inclusive society to tackling climate change and environmental challenges and supporting women in stepping in their full power.

WECAN is very honored to collaborate with amazing partners for the Protect the Peoples Emergency (PPE) Partnership Fund – so far we’ve successfully donated 80,000 masks to Indigenous communities on the frontlines of COVID-19. The work continues, please consider donating to the fund here: https://protectthepeoples.org/ Donations go directly to providing Native American communities and medical staff personal protection equipment (PPE) and other community needs. Every dollar we raise will go to those most in need. REPOST • @indigenousrising Our Protecting the Peoples Emergency Partnership Fund is driven by and for the Indigenous community, and aims to respond to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous communities across Turtle Island. To date we have distributed 80k masks and counting to our frontline relatives. The Protecting the Peoples Emergency Partnership Fund is comprised of the Indigenous Environmental Network, Eaton Workshop, Movement Rights, Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services, Idle No More-SF Bay, Amazon Watch, Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN), and Global Exchange, organizations uniting to launch the Protecting the Peoples Emergency (PPE) Partnership Fund to supply Indian Country with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). This effort is historic in nature given the collective action of the environmental justice movement to come to the aid of Indigenous communities across Turtle Island partnering with the IEN and with tribal leadership to ensure that these masks are delivered to where they are needed most. These partner organizations have long valued the twin importance of climate justice and Indigenous rights, but never before has a campaign of this magnitude with organizations of this caliber from the environmental justice movement sought to respond to an emergency in the indigenous community.
