Our Earth.

Our Future.

And Our Responsibility.

Climate change is pushing life on Earth toward a tipping point. Indigenous peoples are leading the way in safeguarding the world’s forests. Protected forests protect humanity. But such responsibility should not rest solely on their shoulders. It’s time for everyone to step up, and become better allies.

This Earth Day, stand with Indigenous peoples to protect their forests and our planet.
