Join us on the right side of history. r1 ... PAOV —

It's working.

Five years ago, we launched the Pull Together campaign to fight Enbridge. We beat that pipeline and tankers project by backing Indigenous legal challenges. Against all odds, we're winning against Kinder Morgan, too.

RAVEN has always believed that Indigenous legal rights are the best way to hold the Canadian industrial state to account. That theory of change was validated — powerfully — with yesterday's Federal Court of Appeal ruling in favour of Indigenous Nations who stood against the TransMountain expansion project.

Never underestimate the power of a group of committed people who combine a little bit of mischief with a whole lot of generosity. Together, we're changing the story in this country and setting out a new path forward.

Will you donate today to keep RAVEN's mission burning bright?

We livestreamed yesterday's historic press conference: Watch it here;

While we are SO happy about yesterday's Kinder Morgan ruling, this fight is not about one pipeline, one project. Take a look at our website and discover other groundbreaking RAVEN campaigns.

For any one of our Indigenous partners, there are priorities in their home communities that are urgent. Taking legal action and standing up to corporations and governments with deep pockets can feel impossible when faced with the many issues facing Indigenous communities: housing, clean water, fair access to education. Standing with First Nations so they can afford to access justice when their rights are being trampled is a critical piece of a big, ambitious project that aims to see Indigenous sovereignty reasserted, unbalanced relationships righted, and respect rekindled for all lives — for all life.

With a mission that at times has felt overwhelming and — occasionally — incredibly empowering, RAVEN has built a community of supporters who have backed some formidable wins. You are putting reconciliation into action by standing beside First Nations, standing on the right side of history and investing in our common future.

It is absolutely time to celebrate with the Nations who fearlessly took this forward. It's also a moment to lean in, and double down. We're willing to stand with Indigenous Peoples through thick and thin: will you go the distance with us?

With gratitude,

Susan Smitten + the RAVEN team
