THE SANCTUARY FOR INDEPENDENT MEDIA
BRINGS TOGETHER INDIGENOUS-LED MEDIA COLLECTIVES
A WWF SCREENING & DISCUSSION OF
THE CONDOR & THE EAGLE
FIGHTING CLIMATE INJUSTICE TOGETHER
We can’t successfully protect the diversity of life on Earth without understanding the ways that environmental threats disproportionately impact Indigenous communities in the United States and around the world, and without supporting those communities’ efforts as land and water defenders. WWF is proud to be partnering with The Condor & The Eagle’s team. We hope that you will join us in watching this powerful documentary film and learn how to support the movement against climate injustice from our exceptional panelists.

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 100 online events until December, 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!
