JOIN THE DISCUSSION
The Council of Canadians is happy to partner a second time with our friends at Indigenous Climate Action to bring you a second screening of the film The Condor and the Eagle. We’ll be checking in with two guests who appeared in the film, Casey Camp-Horinek and Bryan Parras, and two community members from front-line communities we touched base with at the first screening, Molly Wickham and Kanahus Manuel. The Council of Canadians is committed to ongoing solidarity with all Indigenous Peoples. We look forward to welcoming you to a second opportunity to experience this film and all the information it provides about the struggle for climate justice on the front lines of extreme resource extraction.
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 past Impact Series were very successful as more than 25K people watched our film, we raised more than $100K for frontline communities and 500K+ people watched our panel discussions! Our online events mobilize 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!
