From muzzling scientists and stripping environmental protections to negotiating secretive trade agreements and trampling Indigenous rights, this government is silencing watchdogs and opening the country to devastation for the benefit of a few.

Indigenous-led movements have responded by standing up across Canada to defend Indigenous rights, and the land, water and air.

As more and more people across the country step up to support these movements, it’s important to have an understanding of how to do solidarity work effectively.

That’s why we’re working to launch Skills for Solidarity,1 an online education program that will teach key lessons about our nations’ histories and ways to do solidarity work.

Throughout the summer, Skills for Solidarity will host 5 online panels with corresponding workbooks, covering everything from our nations’ shared history to case studies of effective soldiarity work. Imagine the difference it could make if 2000, 5000, or even 10,000 Canadians committed to learn more about doing solidarity work?

Please sign up now and spread the word to anyone who would be interested.
