Seeding Sovereignty Indigenous Impact Rapid Response Initiative
DONATE TO RAPID RESPONSE FUND
Vulnerable communities are hit hardest by crises - even those that purport to affect everyone.
Indigenous communities remaining strong and resilient during this global pandemic despite chronic, deep poverty, a youth suicide epidemic, violence to womxn, and myriad COVID-19 health complicating illnesses. Our communities will be last to receive desperately needed PPE, medical care and support.
Our new Indigenous Impact Rapid Response Initiative works in partnership with Navajo, Apache, and Pueblo communities in New Mexico where need is critical to immediately provide protective masks to communities, distribute healthy food to elders and families, redistribute money to fund essential stipends to those in need, and send Indigenous authored books to quarantined students.
We are committed to our Elder culture and language bearers who sustain our communities, ways of knowing and provide grandparent medicine. Their Indigenous knowledge can help our global community during this climate crisis.
Indigenous peoples are on the frontlines and protect living forests, waterways and resist extractive projects for us all. During the COVID-19 crisis we are helping them first. Please join us!
