Dear PAOV,

This year was the culmination of a decade of collaborative work for justice. As the RAVEN community has grown, our impact has deepened. As we look back at a string of breathtaking victories — protecting the Peel Watershed, halting Taseko’s New Prosperity Mine, stopping Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline — we’re striding forward into the coming year with the knowledge that, while the challenges we face are tough, our collective strength and commitment will continue making the impossible, possible.

This fall, we were invited to witness the historic opening of Heiltsuk Nation’s Big House: it’s just one example of how traditions and cultural practices are coming roaring back into resurgence in Indigenous communities. Throughout their three day ceremony, the Heiltsuk took time to ‘blanket’ people who had contributed to the community’s well being and resilience.

In that spirit, can you feel the metaphoric blanket from the RAVEN team draping over your shoulders? Know you are part of something magnificent: you are playing a part in the turning of the tides, and the dawning of a new era of justice, reconciliation, and respect.

With RAVEN’s ongoing sustainability nourished by a flood of new monthly donors, we’re ready to continue to lean in, hard, to stop TMX, pursue Aboriginal title cases, confront the expansion of the tar sands and fracked gas industries, and spread the message that, by standing strong with Indigenous Peoples, we can leave a legacy of beauty, community, and belonging for future generations. It’s not too late to donate towards 2020’s work, by either making a contribution right now or joining our Circle of Allies as a monthly donor.

We close the year with our heart(h)s stoked by the warmth of the amazing, dedicated RAVEN community.

So glad to be soaring into 2020 with you,


Susan, Laurie, Leah, Josie, Andrea, Ana, Kathryn, Karissa, Maia, Maureen + Carly
The RAVEN family
