skills for solidarity-banner

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 democracy, Indigenous rights and the land, water and air.

In March, Idle No More organizers, along with Defenders of the Land, released a call for a Solidarity Spring, inviting more non-Indigenous people to get involved and work together.1

That’s why we’re working with friends in the Idle No More movement to launch Skills for Solidarity,2 an online education program that will teach key lessons about our nations’ histories and ways that you can become a better ally.

Skills for Solidarity will offer lessons, articles and videos throughout the spring. Imagine the difference it could make if 200, 500, 1,000 or even 10,000 Canadians committed to learn more and become better allies?

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