Our on the ground mutual aid work launched at the start of the pandemic We are in a time of increasing and catastrophic climate crises. There is no choice but to keep building community-stewarded systems of care and tangible rapid response support to heal our lands, waters and each other.
November is Native American Heritage Month!
We are scaling our mutual aid, youth mental wellness, protection of Indigenous relatives, and more!
Our Growing Medicine Wheels is an Indigenous youth led movement for mental wellness that (1) distributes skateboards to underserved reservations, (2) provides tangible support to counter the epidemic rates of addiction, depression, and suicide experienced by Indigenous youths, and (3) provides jobs to Indigenous youth leaders.
Our new Missing and Surviving Indigenous Peoples Program 1) sends immediate support and funds to families searching for missing or stolen relatives, 2) sends immediate support and funds to families mourning murdered relatives who need to heal and 3) fights to protect communities and their homelands from fossil fuel extraction.
Our Expanding Food Sovereignty Program 1) grows and distributes foods to communities facing food scarcity, (2) hosts a growing sovereign seed bank of climate adaptive seeds (3) reconnects community stewards to Indigenous lands.
Our Critically Needed New Reproductive Justice and Body Sovereignty work gets funding to Indigenous led reproductive choice networks and is building a culturally based abortion doula training program and doula collectives to care for relatives at this time of great political attack on choice and reproductive health.
Across the next four weeks of Native American Heritage month, our GOAL is to raise $10,000 for each program!
Thank you from our hearts for your kinship and support as we all navigate challenging times.
