Scenes from Our 2011 Annual Luncheon

This year's luncheon was a celebration of fifteen years of achievements for the people and rainforests of the Amazon and the launch of new initiatives to advance alternatives to large dams in the Brazilian Amazon, secure land rights for indigenous peoples in Peru, and bring clean water to oil affected communities in Ecuador.

Our special guest was Brazilian indigenous leader Sheyla Yakarepi Juruna, an unwavering defender of the Xingu River and indigenous rights in Brazil and key spokesperson for the campaign to stop the Belo Monte Dam.
