Fundraiser for the Native Women's Shelter

Climate Justice Action McGill is fundraising for the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal (NWSM) because the unique and disproportionate hardships Indigenous people have faced and continue to face as a result of colonialism are inextricable from our fight for climate justice. Those of us who are settlers are benefitting from the exploitation of Indigenous land. We have a responsibility to make reparations including monetary reparations when we can. We are hoping to raise $700 that can be used to support the important work this group does.

About NWSM

The NWSM is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year. They offer in-house programs as well as an outreach program. They provide 20 workshops a month which range from art therapy to traditional teachings.

What makes the NWSM so unique is that it works within an Aboriginal framework. They incorporate as many different teachings from all the different cultures of First Nations Inuit and Métis. They combine traditional healing techniques and contemporary approaches to give the women a multitude of options to address their needs and issues and deal with their traumas.

Land Acknowledgement

Climate Justice Action McGill organizes on the traditional, unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Kanien'kehá:ka, the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiohtiá:ke, colonially known as Montreal, has long served as a site of meeting and exchange for Indigenous nations. As advocates for justice, recognition, and respect, we must always remind ourselves of the historical injustice that makes our gathering here possible – and to redress the injustices that continue to pervade our society and culture.
