        We are in a historic moment wherein world leaders will continue drafting a new global treaty agreement on climate change this year in Lima at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference on Parties (COP). The final agreement is then expected to be signed in 2015 at the COP 21 in Paris. Having the voices of our Indigenous communities at this global meeting on climate is critical, and we need your help getting there. We are raising funds to support our work for Climate Justice and Indigenous Rights as we bring together Indigenous Women of the South and North of the Americas for the formation of an International Compact Agreement as Life-Givers for Future Generations, as Keepers of the Waters, as Defenders for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and as Sisters, Mothers and Grandmothers in Defense of the Territorial Integrity of Mother Earth. (Learn more at IndigenousRising.org) On this trip, delegates will… Participate in mobilizations and activities that will demand that government leaders be more accountable to people and the planet now and in the future; Participate with international social movement allies in shaping global organizing strategies to challenge corporate-driven policies; Participate in self-organized activities that we will coordinate with allies; Participate in delegation briefings, orientations and strategy discussions to guide our work in our frontline Native communities, nationally and internationally. Build relationships with one another, share local work and build a stronger grassroots movement in the United States. Strengthen our relationship with our indigenous brothers and sisters from the Amazon and Andes; as well as other regions of the world. We will also be taking part in a US-based sister Social and Climate Justice group, called Grassroots for Global Justice (GGJ). Your heartfelt support is always deeply appreciated. Your kind donations are welcome and can be made at IndigenousRising.org

        • Pablo Solon - 2011 International Award, Global Exchange

          International Honoree, Pablo Solon, is the Bolivian Ambassador to the United Nations. Ambassador Solon in his role as Ambassador to the UN has boldly confronted the reality of climate change with principled approaches that often put him at odds with the rubber stamp diplomats of other nations. Global Exchange was present in Cancun this past December at the UN Climate Change Conference when Bolivia refused to sign on to the toothless government agreement, and stood with civil society to champion the Rights of Mother Earth. Mr. Solon makes a clear call to tackle the root causes of the climate change crisis systemically, with scale, and once and for all. Having worked with indigenous people' movements, workers, unions, student associations and human rights organizations, Ambassador Solon recently took his activist heart to the global stage of the UN and introduced the draft text for a Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth, a companion piece to the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, this past Earth Day, April 22nd. On June 1, 2011 Mr. Solon was honored by Global Exchange (globalexchange.org) at the 9th Annual Human Rights Awards. Watch his speech here: http://www.vimeo.com/25078382
