EVENT POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE, still to be determined
eQuilter is committed to being a force for good in the world, focusing on humanitarian and environmental issues that tend to affect Indigenous people who do not have a voice. For over 21 years eQuilter has donated 2% of sales, and has now raised over $1.75 million for a list of non-profits including Mission of Love and Earthworks. We believe that clean air and water is a human right, and the politicizing of pollution regulations for the profits of the few, is morally wrong. We support organizations who work to bring the truth about these topics to the public, so they can make their own decisions about how we will care for Mother Earth.
Please join us as stewards and custodians for our precious waters and wild lands, and we hope that by sharing this documentary, your voice will join with ours to call for transparency and healing as we seek solutions for the damage we have done to the environment.
By joining us for this screening, you are supporting effective movement-building towards powerful change and calls to action. This event is part of the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities".
Our first events in July were a huge success. 6,000 people watched our film, 150,000 watched our panel discussions and we raised more than $25,000 for impacted communities. We therefore decided to keep organizing events on an even larger scale: we are currently organizing more than 40 online events until December (FALL IMPACT SERIES), mobilizing hundreds of communities and organizations, presenting to large audiences the inspiring work being done by land defenders across the Americas. Join us and support frontline communities!
