LEGAL FUND FOR INDIGENOUS WOMEN

We are launching this fundraiser to support Indigenous women in the Ecuadorian Amazon in their pursue of justice and freedom! 

Indigenous women in the Amazon are defending the rainforest and their people's lands from destruction.  Because of their successful work many women have been targeted and persecuted by extractive companies and the government. 

This means that Indigenous women are more exposed to experiencing multiple types of violence both within and outside their communities, systemic violence from extractive industries, governments & structural and racial discrimination. As a result  there is no guarantee of their rights and crimes continue unpunished. 

There is extremely little support for Indigenous women facing gender violence. More than ever, Indigenous women defenders need to be defended and protected! 

With the funds raised we will support Indigenous women throughout 2021 with:

- legal costs 

- logistical expenses related to legal processes

- professional emotional support  costs 

- costs for any necessary safety measures 


THANK YOU & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

All donations will go through Amazon Watch.


ESPAÑOL:

Estamos lanzando esta recaudación de fondos para apoyar a las mujeres indígenas en la Amazonía ecuatoriana en su búsqueda de justicia y libertad!

Las mujeres indígenas de la Amazonía están defendiendo la selva y las tierras de la destrucción. Debido a su trabajo, muchas mujeres han sido perseguidas por las empresas extractivas y el gobierno.

Esto significa que las mujeres indígenas están más expuestas a múltiples tipos de violencia tanto dentro como fuera de sus comunidades; violencia sistémica de las industrias extractivas, gobiernos y discriminación estructural y racial. Como resultado, no hay garantía de sus derechos y los delitos continúan impunes.

Hay muy poco apoyo para las mujeres indígenas que enfrentan violencia de género. ¡Más que nunca, las defensoras indígenas necesitan ser defendidas y protegidas!

Con los fondos recaudados apoyaremos a las mujeres indígenas con:

- costos legales

- gastos logísticos relacionados con procesos legales

- costos de apoyo emocional profesional

- costes de cualquier medida de seguridad necesaria

Muchas gracias!
