Today, March 8, is International Women's Day (#IWD), first celebrated in 1909. While too many women all over the word still suffer from violence and rights abuses, it is important to recognize the amazing work Indigenous women are doing to make change happen. They are movement builders, system shakers, stewards of ecosystems, community caretakers and working towards a transformative, equitable, and just future for all of our relations.
On this International Women's Day stand in solidarity with women as they fight to assert their rights. Join us in this action to honor, uplift, and resource Indigenous women's leadership, so that next year we will have even more to celebrate!
